Well, I was totally wrong.

After forty-three years of hosting Thanksgiving at our house, we’re joining our daughter’s family and close friends at hers. Our responsibilities are three different flavors of pies, baked by my wife today.

Every year since the late seventies I’ve set my camera and widest angle lens on a tripod and done a self-timed photo of us all at the table. Color prints by mail then followed. With the change of venue I’m being requested to rather take group shots of families this year. I suggested just using my phone and air dropping to everyone else’s phones after the meal. That is going over like a lead balloon with my Missus, but all the younger ones will love it! “For the times, they are a-changin’.”

Last night our daughter turned to me and said "So Dad, will you bring the big camera and your tripod? I'd like a wide angle photo of us all at the table, and I think you should place the camera and tripod opposite the table by the front door."

So, here they are (reduced for messaging to family from iPhone) tonight:
