Gothic Arch Challenge- Family

I had fun with this one. I've been wanting to use this picture for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. It's of my mother (second on the left), her sister and their parents (my grandparents). I have no idea what they were doing but I really think it just encapsulates a moment, hence the caption. I really did capture it too as I covered the arch with an acetate overlay using the same quote and popped the clock on top to protect it all. It was difficult to get a good picture because of the acetate and it's still not great. The die cut on the bottom is a Quickutz Revolution one.
