Photographer's Note

This is one of my oldest photograph and certainly my favorite, dating from 1992.
This little girl is probably close to 25 years old now... How time passes.

At the time I was using a Nikonos IV, designed for under water photography. You had to focus manually, and choose your aperture. The camera would decide on the shutter speed accordingly.

I was sitting next to this little wooden shack, with a friend and saw the little girl with the corner of my eye. I evaluated my distance to be around 7 feet (a bit over 2 meters) chose probably f8 for good sharpness, quickly composed and fired.

I remember having butterflies in my stomach and was very anxious to have the Kodak film developed. I was hooked on photography...

Ironically this was my only waterproof camera (never used it under water) and the only one to fail due to corrosion, in more than 20 years sailing...
