Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs.
Today’s Sepia Saturday prompt suggests that we consider the man on the right side of the photograph whose head has been cut off.
I have a few family photos like that.
Seems that people in my family don’t always have the best aim.
Or is something else at work here?
Take this picture, for example…
A great shot of my Aunt Wilma (the baby). Clearly whomever took the picture couldn’t help but focus on those gloriously chubby little baby legs.
Thankfully, Grandma identified everyone on the back of the picture, so I know that the body on the left belongs to my mom and the white shirt and tie is Uncle Al. That’s Uncle Roy on the right. He was just short enough to make it into the picture of Wilma.
Here’s a full-size Aunt Wilma front and center again on Christmas morning ….
And Mom (on the right), has her head this time because now she and Aunt Wilma are about the same height.
Me, on the other hand – just a faceless head.
Aunt Wilma seems to find it funny that she is the center of every picture.
Uncle Roy is laughing it up as well. He knows what’s going on. Sitting beside Wilma, he’s made it into another picture.
To see what other’s have done with today’s decapitated man, “head” over to the Sepia Saturday blog.
