Lovely Family / by Dave Hileman

Sometimes I shoot photos for a family who seems to be having a great time but no camera with them. Most of the time they are content with a quick snap using their phone's camera (I, however, am no fan of "selfies"). In the depth of the Channels that was not as good an option so I photographed them and then sent them the photo. They were so nice and the little girl was a trooper. It is a long hike up and back and she did it on her own. Made me sad that I couldn't complain and grumble about how hard it was when she was having a great time. Anyway, it is a fun way to meet some people - I love the little one peeping over dad's shoulder to see why they stopped. (Slight edit from original to minimize "violence" per friend's suggestion!)
