Family

Film scans of my nieces and nephews. 

Living 1500 miles from my family base has it's perks - whenever I ask them for a photo, they know I mean it.  Wrangling all of them for a photo can be a hard task, but I suppose they are happy to humor me when they know they'll only see Uncle Craig once-ish a year.  I made point to bring enough film for our visit to Atlanta this past summer.  They looked at me a bit strange when I pulled out the old Mamiya RB67.  I think they were still confused even after I explained the whole process...       

On a roll of ten frames, I had seven left to work with.  Are they the best images? No...do I care? No.  Will I enjoy looking at these in 20 years?  hell yeah : )
