      Feels like a shot from Time magazine or Newsweek following a story about taxes or some public opinion.

      ...and family dinner around the table USED to be ordinary. Now it's becoming a rare occurance.

      (I love your icon LOL)

      I bought a book called In Focus: National Geographic Greatest Portraits and have had that on the brain. I intended this as a documentorial kind of photo, so I'm pleased as punch that you've noticed! And regrettably, you're right about the rarity of family dinners anymore.

      This photo was also inspired by that book.

      Can I just say that I laughed at your icon again? It's hilarious.
