American Thanksgiving is a day where families in their varied incarnations come together to chew on turkey legs, eat pumpkin pie, and watch football. For many Americans, it’s a favorite holiday because it’s all about food and family (and well, football) with no gifts to buy and house to decorate. It’s also a time to spent with rarely seen relatives allowing us to examine the warts and odd behaviors of those with similar DNA. Today’s exhibition is about those photographs that might not make it into the family scrapbook, but are perhaps more real than the picture perfect memory.

And because it’s “thanks”giving, I am taking this opportunity to give thanks to the incredible Lenscratch staff: Sarah Stankey (who compiled today’s post), Grant Gill, Clay Lipsky, Pauline Gola, Jonas Yip, Noelle Swan Gilbert, Val Patterson, and Patty Lemke who all donate their time and energies with no financial compensation, as a way to give back to our community. And also big thanks to our wonderful guest editors and to our readers and contributors. I am so appreciative of your time and support.  Enjoy the day and thanks for submitting!
