Baby sean and Minera

Uploaded: February 13, 2015 | Entered: February 13, 2015 03:24:53


This is my step grandson, Sean (the Ferrari painter) with our tender, loving Golden Retriever, Minera, about 24 years ago. I shot this scene with a Canon A1 Program (film) SLR when I really didn't know what I was doing with a camera. I kept the scan of the now-missing print. The print itself was full of weird reflections (coming from a window on the right, and ugly artifacts and I spent a lot of time fixing them yesterday.
