I am now seventy years old. I took this photo as an early teen ager with a Brownie Hawkeye my parents gave me when I was in 6th Grade! I have been a life long camera addict. I even taught photography for twenty
one years and co-authored a high school text - THE PHOTOGRAPHIC EYE - Learning to see with a Camera. Photo taken on the family farm in an area called Cox Creek in the beautiful wooded hill north of Strawberry Point, Iowa.

    You were an artist at a young age. Even the light foreground retains detail.
