Two ladies holding hands approached us, and it sure suggested mother and daughter. Both were more than agreeable to being photographed. In fact, I think they had fun.
McKinley, the daughter, graduated from nearby Marietta High school. She had skipped 8th grade, so she afforded herself the luxury of a year without school. She is a vocalist and has had numerous open mic sessions. Soon she will attend Visible Music College in Memphis, where there is a strong Christian influence. She informed me that McKinley means “wise leader” in Scottish. Annie, her mom, is a teacher.
As I was photographing, three more ladies approached. There was much hugging and “How are yous” going around. One lady was Annie's roommate in college. And she refused to be photographed. Drat, she looked great. But the two others were (reluctantly) game. Tate just graduated from Georgia College in Millegeville, GA. She now has a degree in Psychology and has no idea what she will be doing next.
