New Page: The Lighthouse Pyramids
Hello, my name is Vicky and I make Lighthouse Pyramids. Or more accurately, I orchestrate them and shoot the results.
All families have traditions. Some of those traditions make sense only to the people in the family; viewed from outside, many traditions appear silly or plainly incomprehensible. These are, we feel, the very best sorts of traditions. Silliness and family-specific nonsense are what bind groups of ragingly disparate people together. History is formed by the collective memories of groups who share and remind each other of their collective follies on a regular basis.
Our family has many of these, spanning all of the seasons. This particular (and new) tradition transcends seasonal festivities. We have effected a tradition that marries two of the wonders of the Ancient World; we make Lighthouse Pyramids. In the past, I have included these in blog entries and photo collections. At present, however, they have taken on a life of their own and I feel that they deserve their own page here on the blog. I’ll regularly update the collection, but here are a few to start you off.
