This portrait was shot with a self-timer using a Nikon film camera set on a tripod.
I did a series of practice pictures at the old home place in the summer of 1998 for a photo contest, on families that I entered at that time. I was kneeling next to my sister Bonnie with the black hat and black dress. Her daughter Christy is standing in back of me. The lady in pink is grandmother to Christy and mother to Bonnie and me. The little girl in the picture frame on the table is Mom when she was six years old. She will be 100 on her next birthday in July of 2009.
