These are photos from my birthday party earlier in the summer.
By some small miracle all 4 of my siblings who live scattered about the globe were in town. It was probably the first time in 15 years we were all in one place. It was a big crowd, and a fun time.
The photo above is my mother. Normally I would consider a mid-blink shot to be ruined, but in this instance I think it conveys very well her satisfaction at having all her children gather in one place, and the pleasure of celebrating the 60th birthday of a child.
I’d be extremely happy to live so long as to see my kids turn 60; though technically feasible it seems highly unlikely.
Most of the the rest of this roll is published at 52 Rolls today, in a post called Birthday Pairs, here.
