Front Porch

Wright County, Minnesota, 1979

   The puzzle of partners occupied our attentions in the summer of '79. Trips to the country were a big part—we were all trying to suss out who we would join on our trip through life. I was already out of the mix, but these folks were still trying. It would all be figured it out in a couple of years, at least for their first marriages. No shame in trying and failing.

   "Till death do us part" goes the wedding vow, and that became a fact as well for some.

How do you get people to forget you're there so you can take such great pictures?

A big help in taking unposed pictures is to have a camera with a waist level finder- where you look down at the camera, so you aren't looking at the subjects. Some digital cameras have fold out screens and work the same way.
