Above is a picture of my grandparents’ living room. I took this when I was in college, going through my 17mm lens phase. My grandmother painted the picture above the couch. Pretty sure that’s a box of prints I brought over sitting on the coffee table. I used to always bring new photos over to show them.
Below are some photos I’ve taken over the years at my great-aunt and uncle’s house, also in Linden, New Jersey. These are my family pictures, and mostly what I have to look back on as memories. Is that weird? I had to go back to NJ last week for a funeral, and again I realized I don’t really have any pictures of my actual relatives. I should probably take at least a few in the near future.
