my folks and me, new york / summer 1979
This is one of the only pictures that I have with both of my parents together. I always assumed it was because they were divorced when I was two, but the reality is that for all of the millions of pictures we take today, we hardly have any whole-family snapshots of us Smith's. I think this is one of the few. I really need to make a point to capture more. I cherish this fuzzy picture (for whatever reason) and even if Little Smith is never as sentimental as his mama, something tells me that I will want to look back fondly on the three of us during this sweet phase of life.
