It is the Summer of 1959 somewhere in the land of sky blue water, the gorgeous state of Minnesota. I may be a park in the Twin Cities area, and some of the family are enjoying a nice warm day. The monochrome seems a natural for Mary's Sepia Scenes.
The participants, L-R: Aunt Terry, me (age 4), Michele, Claudia, Grandma V. and dad. I don't know what the statue is (Hiawatha and Minnehaha?), but its bronze tone a natural for sepia, too. I just noticed the leaves above. Grandpa did not aim for the swirly in-motion look of the foliage with his German Exa SLR camera. But the effect is stunning, almost a kaleidoscope in style. I didn't even see the swirl until about ten minutes ago...See sepia in many iterations at this fun meme.
