Laine wouldn’t get in and pretend to drive – Lanie joined me for a short hike on the Yellow Trail at Busiek. We went off-trail a bit so she could see the old panel van. I wanted Lanie to get in and pretend to drive, but the lack of any sort of solid floor put her off the idea. 2 pictures
Big Fish – The Black & White Selection – I love black and White photography. It’s my preferred medium for portraits. But most people expect color pictures so now-a-days I tend to go with color and make the B&W copies for myself. Color is especially expected with the theater 15 pictures
