My son and daughter-in-law, their 4 year old,
Daisy the dog, and the newest member of their family
came to visit this weekend.
Katie wanted some artsy photos of Oliver
and she’d saved some poses she liked from Pinterest.
Oliver slept pretty much through the whole ordeal.

Theme Thursday’s theme this week is together.
That opens a lot of territory,
but I threw a dart and here’s where it landed
on my photography map.
Chickens and eggs.
Which brings me to turkeys (poor things. . . .)
Give thanks you're not one of them
on this American Holiday.

Last Monday, I was still catching up on the sleep I’d lost
while welcoming Oliver to the world.
Today, I’m smiling over the photos taken yesterday
at the “Meet Oliver” shower
of my dad with his newest great-grandson,
the wonderful, cheerful, big brother Logan,
Auntie Lise with her newest nephew,
And my son and his beautiful family.

Most nights, the lights go out about 11 and I wake up
when the early morning light starts peeking through cracks
at the edges of shade-covered windows.
Last Thursday night was an exception.
Because by 11:05 on Thursday night, I was at the hospital.
Waiting for this little person to be placed in his mommy's arms.
Watching my first son welcome his second son
and then take a well-deserved nap
as Oliver and his mommy (my beautiful daughter-in-law)
got better acquainted.

In my somewhat-sporadic Sepia Saturday posts,
I’ve sometimes featured images of Native Americans
by Edward S. Curtis, taken a century ago.

He was funded by J.P. Morgan, a wealthy industrialist,
to photograph indigenous peoples before
their way of life was lost forever.

Now, a young photographer named Matika Wilbur,
a member of the Swinomish and Tulalip tribes
|Hand-tinted Matika Wilbur image from her website|
of coastal Washington, is setting off
on a 3-year venture to create images of tribal peoples
from each of the 564 federally-enrolled tribes.
Her work is superb and explores the poignant topic
of what it means to be “Indian.”
Unlike Curtis, she doesn't have a wealthy industrialist bankrolling her.
She's cobbling together moneys from individual donors and various grants.
I helped her reach her seed money goal on Kickstarter,
But if you’re interested in helping her realize her vision,
Please visit her website and contact her.
