    I'm sure this is on accident, but I can't see the motorcycle because of all the people. :D

    This is a highly respected elder named Clara, who turned 80 in July. I can't even imagine how many changes she has experienced throughout her life. She has lived a lot of history and some of that is shown in her face. I hope to visit with her next year and hear some of her stories for a future magazine article. At first she was pretty shy about letting me take her photo, but after her nephew encouraged her to say yes as I could put her photo in a magazine, she relented and had the cutest smile on her face. My boss liked the photo so much we put it on the front cover of our magazine, which gets circulated through rural Alaska. Clara will be very surprised when she sees that she is now a "cover girl!" I told her I really liked the furs on her coat and I correctly identified the wolverine fur.

    This is Lucy and her adorable son Alex. Every time I saw Lucy throughout the day's festivities (4th of July) she had a beautiful smile on her face.

    She closely resembles some of the Ojibwa elders I knew in northern Minnesota. Great photo.
