What he has seen

it's 1943 and he has obviously seen a lot in a rural Texas county....he looks so very serene and calm.... Would love to have someone like that for my Dr.....oops...primary care physician.

Color

I don't know anything about cameras but the colors are so real, these two look like they are going to move. What a pretty little girl and this man was born to be a doctor. What a great shot.

She's being so BRAVE!

Her red hair and tanned arms are so cute, and she's being so brave.

When I roll my sleeve up (when I'm lucky and it's not the other end they want!), I go completely pale and can't look. (One time they made me spit out my gum while donating blood in our school's annual blood drive because they thought I was about to faint...how embarrassing...)
