A Dozen Works

I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias and seventy-eight trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography.
