One of my favoite photos is one I took in 1980, on vacation in St. Maarten. While spending a rainy week with my husband on a usually sunny island, we wandered around in the car, searching for something to do. It was then we happened upon this family, celebrating a birthday, in an area off the beaten path.
With camera in hand, I asked them if I could take their photo, and they posed in such a perfect composition, I could not have planned it better.
All I had to do was click the shutter.
