With their new cameras
a brother and sister
take pictures of their vacation.
But when they look at their photographs they see:
1. The back of Dad's head
3. A container of noodles
Does 1 + 2 + 3 = summer vacation?
What about how it felt to swim in the lake? What about the stories their cousins told and the taste of a just-invented strawberry and whipped cream dessert?
For those memories—the memories of summer and the memories of family that mean the most—they need to look someplace else. Someplace deep inside. Someplace permanent.
One Potato Review
Surprisingly candid. Here are the desultory photographs in a notebook meant to document one family’s often rainy, sometimes tedious pilgrimage back to the old family farm to visit with relatives - and the very different pictures that continue to linger from all of those times when they were too busy to fiddle with the camera. Because what we remember - about a week, or a year, or a vacation - isn’t always so photogenic. For older, more experienced, readers.
