Another Family Get Together – 2008

Seattle in the Fall


I took this classic staircase picture on my camera and that night, the pictures turned out blurry. I’m still not sure how that happened because it was a first with this camera. But I’m guessing I accidentally touched the zoom. As this was a spur of the moment opportunity I was very disappointed. But my brother Pete got a shot that worked. So here is the three generations of our family.

Here are pictures of the guests of honor, travelers from a state far away. The silly hats were my idea and are used by this restaurants for when they serve high tea, or so I’m told. We stopped at the Cabbage Patch restaurant which is Mom’s fav place in Snohomish.

    I love to see family photos. This one was super.  I have one fairly recent that reminds me of this in that there are three generations in it.  One SIL passed on months later after it was taken.

    hello there :))
    lovely picture of the family,… and interesting you have mangefd to catch some orbs of light on there… there is some dispute whether such orbs are ghosties or just flecks of dust… who knows you may have captured some of your ancestors from long ago in the picture too and it may explain why some of the pictures were slightly blurred… your ancestors may have been messing with the camera… ;))

    I only find the orbs, halos, and what not on pictures from cheap and usually very old cameras. Still, it does make for an interesting effect. I don’t get these effects with my high-end cameras like the one I used for the bottom three pictures. Have a Witchy day sweetie.

    No fair, that was the picture I was trying to get you to help me get it over to my blog.  I even had the written part done but gave it up.  Now I have to think of something else to write about. Mom

    Mom, you have a different audience than I do for the most part. It should go on your blog. Click on the picture and copy the larger version to your hard drive. Then have at it.  :o)
