This is one of the best pictures I've ever taken. It's one of my favorites, anyway. I love the look on Edmund's face as his little nephew jumps in with the big kids. The boy wasn't afraid to join in, whether it be swimming in the pond or playing ultimate frisbee with us up on the grass. A few years later I would have dinner in New Orleans with Beau and his Uncle Edmund. When I heard the news of what happened to Beau and his sister, I thought back to this day. How happy everyone was. How much fun we had. How beautiful the setting was. And how, unbeknownst to any of us, we were in the company of a woman who would snap 8 years later and do the unthinkable. Chilling.

Do I know you? One man's attempt at a lifelong head count.
NOTE: If you think I might have a photo of you—most likely at least one great photo of you—don't be afraid to ask me to post it (firstname.lastname@example.org) along with a brief entry about how I know you. And if I've met or known you but don't have any photo evidence, feel free to send along YOUR favorite photo of you. (I'm fascinated by what that slideshow might look like.)
