A journalist observes life in the far north.
I love this picture, partly because it shows real emotion instead of just a bunch of mannequin-like smiles and partly because it’s just plain funny. This was the last of a series of pictures taken last night at Alec’s shop. We took some family photos for the annual holiday card. It turned into a disaster with Alec getting frustrated with my camera and Jade getting angry because she no longer wanted to be held. I think we got one usable shot in the bunch before Alec abruptly walked away saying he hates Christmas. Jade was pretty relieved when it was all over.
I am half tempted to make this one black and white and use it for the holiday card but I worry that people would find it more sad than funny. Another reason I like the picture is because I cropped out part of my butt.
