So far I am responsible for taking the pictures posted on my “Photo A Day” blog. But this photo isn’t my doing – it was taken by a woman named Leah DeGeest. The subject is my wife, Debra and Leah was Deb’s grandmother. The setting for the photo is the DeGeest farm south of Miller, SD, and it was taken in the late 1950’s.
What is little Debbie up to? Some kind of chores, I’d guess. What a great moment and great photo! I think it has a kind of Dorothea Lange look, though during the late ’50s, spending time on her grandparent’s farm was a near-perfect existence for a city child like Deb.
Camera and settings unknown. This is a scan from our family photo archive.
