That could be you but asleep face down in your arms. I wouldn't blame you. I'd probably fall asleep watching an old-time photographer set up. My former spousal unit had a great family photo of her grandmother as a girl with her family standing dourly in front of the family home on a Texas ranch. Very dry and dusty looking. The g-girl was little, and she'd been told she couldn't hold her doll for the picture, so she ran upstairs and put it in an open window. There it sits behind them and above them, watching for all time. Great photo.

That's a great story about a wonderful-sounding image, JD. I can just imagine looking over the shoulder of the doll, watching the photo make a pic through the red dust....
