In July I had the opportunity to spend a week in Salinas, CA with my wife's wonderful family. These are some photos of her immediate family. I always love spending time with them. Even though they have very stoic expressions, they are some of the nicest people I have ever spent time with. I believe that the serious expression gives the viewer the opportunity to peer un-obstructed into the personality of the subject. These are truly amazing people who have experienced great things in their lifetime. Many more to come. Thanks.
