on monday evening two people came to our back door and asked if they could take photos of us as we ate. we had invited some friends over and were eating in our yard. we said 'sure'.
turns out the photographer is douglas adesko and he is creating some work with the family meal as the subject. he was passing through on some commercial work assignments and we guess he just randomly happened upon our place and saw the card table and chairs in the yard. he's hoping to publish a book with the images he creates.
check out his web site here. there is some amazing photo journalism under the 'apt building' portfolio.
the family meal has become one of our most treasured and sacred rituals as a community of faith. it was a sweet and serendipitous occasion.
