Oldies

This is my favorite photo of all time.

This is me, when I was three years old, in Mexico at a family gravesite in a little town called "Alamo," where my dad's family lived (and some still do!). I am sitting on my Great Grandpa's grave, and the photo was accidently double exposed so that the church my Great Grandpa built is overlaid perfectly on top of his grave.

Amazing.

Mexico

Mexico, Great Grandpa's Church

And this photo is of me inside the church that my Great Grandpa built. I love the glow...
