To my family,

I have come to the conclusion that we are all genetically incapable of taking a good photo. Unfortunately, it seems to be contagious and has also affected the in-laws. There isn't a single one of us capable of taking a group shot - even with the instant feedback of digital cameras.

No matter what the situation, the photo will be poorly framed and have other "features" such as:

1. Light pole growing out of someone's head - check
2. Backlit faces with weird shadows - check
3. Light fixture focused in the foreground, people kinda blurry - check
4. Sun glint blooming in the frame - check
5. Photo taker's shadow falling over main subject's face - check
6. Half of group with eyes closed - check
7. Everyone looking in the wrong direction (made us look shifty) - check
8. 60% of photo is off-centered background - check
9. Part sun and part shadow so no one is illuminated correctly - check
10. (My personal favorite) Dog licking himself in background of family shot - check

I'm not sure what the solution to this may be... perhaps recruit a neighbor and hope they don't get infected... or possibly develop our PhotoShop skills and "fix" the photos that way.
