Allison and Daniel making a snow fort. They took me up here to show me
their snow fort.
I couldn't believe my eyes. The shadows, the snow, the fort- So exciting.
I ran (ran!)
all the way home through the deep snow, grabbed the camera gear and hauled
it quickly back. It was even better when I returned. I told J.Sturges that I
thought I had a good one in the holder. He said, "I never say that! Gremlins
will mess up the undeveloped shot."
