Creepy Family Photo!

Very busy with art lately (I keep meaning to upload it) but I felt an urgent need to share this: Found this tonight in a box of family photos and immediately scanned and submitted it to one of my favorite sites: AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. (1/23/10 UPDATE! AFP picked it for their Saturday Night Special! Success!)

As I'm told, my mom met this family while camping in Naples back in the early 80s. Take a close look at the camper in the yellow shirt... or, more specifically, green shorts.

I would make a joke about pitching tents but I'm too worried about the little girl in the hat (who is probably 35 now and still emotionally scarred.)

Anyway, that's all. You're welcome.

Oh, is this not the very extreme awkward family photograh that ever we have gazed?

But what in the mind of your mother created her intent to make this photograph? Is this information known to you?

The guy in the green shorts IS creepy. But let's discuss the Grandpa for a second...looks like Mr. Green Shorts comes by his habits naturally IF you know what I mean!!

Everyone seems to be talking about the guy in the green shorts, but the Grandpa is the bigger story here, as it were. Great picture! The comments at AFP have had me cracking up.
