Big Frank and Lil Frank...


A tale of big Frank and Lil Frank.

I earlier posted a photo of Lil Frank with his Grandmother at a livestock fence. I spoke with big Frank after he saw me taking so many pictures of the child and learned that he was a Park Ranger at the Vincennes Memorial grounds. Also that several generations of his family were involved with history and this time period. As he walked from the shade to the early afternoon sunlight I took this picture. The dark murky background offset by the bright sunlit robe and shirt of the two almost makes this look like a studio portrait.

I sent this picture to Ranger Frank and I hope it will be great memories of the day he spent with Lil Frank in 2010.

That's a lovely portrait, Dan, and what a nice memory for them to have of the occasion. That little boy is so cute.

This is a lovely photo dear Dan, it does look like a studio portrait.
So sweet of you to send the picture to Ranger Frank, such a lovely memory for them both and a lovely story attached to tell young Frank when he is older. xoxo ♡

Thanks Dawn Treader...you can also see the "leash" clearly in the portrait.

Dianne...they were kind enough to let me intrude upon their privacy with the camera so I thought it was the least I could do in return.
