“Sister to sister we will always be, a couple of nuts off the family tree”

 ~ Author Unknown ~

Disclaimer:  This is not an original digital photo.  It is a scanned copy of the original color print, a photo I shot with my first Pentax 35mm SLR way back in the Summer of 1981!  It is obviously not the best quality digital image to be posting on a photography website.  However, this is one of my all time favorite candid shots of my younger sister (my only sister, along with 4 brothers).  I scanned the photo “as is” and have not done any photo editing to the digital image.

I remember vividly making this shot.  We were on our family vacation in Northern Michigan (Cheboygan/Mackinaw City) and made our annual trek to an area  the locals call “Little Billie’s Creek”.  We were walking along the two-track road near the creek, which happens to be in the middle of the forest.  I was concentrating on taking pictures of the flora and fauna, when I looked up at my little sister, just standing there looking so soft and feminine.  I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, to capture the sweetness of her whimsy at the tender age of 16!
