What you see here is my concept for a perfect vacation combined with my favorite type of candid photography. The only downside is that unfortunately it didn't happen to me. During the early 70's my Mom and Dad in law went on a road trip around the United States, and they saw everything worth seeing - Seattle's Space Needle, the Grand Canyon, the desert, Mount Rushmore, and New York at the time the Twin Towers were being finished.
Man, I really need to get a Polaroid.
Or moreover, a time machine....
P.S. My dad-in-law isn't present in any of these shots because he was the one who took them, but I found a photo of him standing at the Big Sur beach in 1966, and it is awesome:
