Mexico Family Reunion

These Mexico pictures are an anomoly for a my Digital Darkroom - because they are straight photography - not much "darkroom" at all. A little exposure help, a little black bumping, but that's it - that beautiful color and sunset glow you see are 100% natural. When I started to play with color like I love to do, there was nothing I could do to make them any more beautiful than they naturally are. Anyone up for a trip to Rocky Point for their next shoot? I have also cheated because in any picture I appear in, I obviously was not the photographer. (Upper left in the pic above - see me?) Thanks to Dad and Uncle Randy and any other person brave enough to handle my camera for letting me usurp their work.
Below are eight genetically identical cousins - we could be an eight-sibling family, right? Two brothers married two sisters; thus we all share the same genes, same grandparents, the same squinty eyes in the sun...




There will be more informal ones of Mexico on my family blog - including about six zillion jumping shots like the one above, for anybody interested...
