The Return of the "Last Entry"

Just came across this photo while cleaning out my desk today. . . it is probably about the earliest surviving photo of my first attempts at photography using my Dad's Minolta 35mm. I think that is Alex Bowie with back to camera, Ken MacCrone with hand on hip, and Mr Fliegler I believe coaching.

Oh, what fun to see and talk to everyone. I could have spent another few hours at Carol's, but, alas, we had a babysitter waiting at home! Hope you enjoy the pictures too. (Chris, can you take our family pictures next year?? Your photos are superb!)

Best Wishes, Mandy Weir Buoni
