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.



















Mamiya M645 Super, 80mm/f2.8 lens, expired Ilford XP shot at ISO 200, commercially processed and scanned.

    • Hi Richard – the kids do seem to get older, don’t they. I, on the other hand, haven’t aged a day in 30 years (I keep telling that to my hair, waistline, knees, elbows, etc but they don’t have ears. Speaking of ears, my tinnitus ain’t listening either).


    • Thanks Yvonne, I find the shots taken on film have more of a nostalgic memory feel from the outset.
      The cake was excellent. Strawberries and whipped cream inside and out – what could be better?
