American Gothic

Random portrait of my brother and sister-in-law... messing around after shooting a larger family portrait. Don't ask me how we got to this end result. I guess this is what happens when you joke that it would be great if we had a pitchfork, and someone actually has one handy.

 

I like this shot on a lot of levels. It makes me laugh, but it also sort of captures who they are as people.... both in a serious way and in a totally tongue-in-cheek way.
