Polaroid: Once Upon A Time

Today my Dad turn 45, so here's a picture of him with my Mom, my sister [well, her back] and my dog Toaz [I miss you, buddy] to celebrate.
I took this picture in 1999/2000 with my first camera, a Polaroid 600 I used to bring along all the time [even when there was no film in it, I've been a photo-maniac since I was 9, you see]. We were in Laigueglia, a nice village in Ligury where I've spent most of my childhood and where I still go for summer vacation and on weekends throughout the year, occasionally. The frame is blue-ish 'cause I painted it as a child. This was my first family shot ever, and most likely my favorite.
Happy Birthday, Dad.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
