Low Tide

My baby girl was born in 1981 in the island nation of Solomon Islands. The poor thing had to start wearing glasses at one year of age due to being born with strabismis. Her glasses were not quite as ugly as mine--but remember, this was the 80s! She went on to have two eye surgeries and years of patching in an unsuccessful attempt to achieve binocular vision.

I'm scanning old slides--a project which will go on for some time--and I really like this photo.

It is very sweet, Thainamu :-)

But what are those filmy birds in the sky background?

You mean the mold on the slide?? I should have scanned these things years ago.

Oh, wait, I couldn't afford a slide scanner back then!
