It Didn't Look This Good In Real Life

Reluctant dinner of sushi and sugar free soda at the Berkeley Marina.
Kinda messy and trashy, we make this snapshot and wow...it's romantic brotherly love in which youth and maturity combined will live forever.

Really, keep in mind, it's only a photograph.

An editor from France drops me a note the next day. She explains that she has been inspired by the work I've done with my children and would like to include this photograph in an anthology. She asks me to write an essay and I do, something about the rituals of dinner time while juggling my role as a parent. She accepts it in a confused way. While editing it all she asks one quick question:

"Who are those people in the beach photograph? Are they strangers?"
