#C4 in my Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
The family fish. Sitting comfortably in his simple bowl, Snydra represented the last living cretaceous giant angler fish. Once thought to be a myth, he was found and caught, for the 7th time in the family history, by the legendary Captain Pyles “Flatbottom” McMorbidly, on a dive during one of his voyages. Snydra was a family pet for around 350 years according to last known records.
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
