David was my grandparents' eldest child. He drowned when he was 12. The story has been told me often enough that that was a tragedy that my grandfather never really came back from, and that the family dynamic was thrown askew from then on. Obviously I never met the guy but I keep all the pictures that I found while having unfettered access to all my grandmother's stuff after she died, and some of these pictures invited me to scan (or even outright photograph) and collage. The water is a picture from off the edge of the USS Constellation aircraft carrier, another nod to the old days when my grandfather was a sailor on a carrier. This collage generated several variations.
