In April, 2005, Lucas snapped this shot of his sisters Amie (age 1 year) and Isabella (age 3) while on a trip to Perry, GA, with his mother, Vicky, and grandmother, Ev. He celebrated his 6th birthday during that trip, the purpose of which was to enter two of the family's Rhodesian ridgebacks in a multi-day specialty show. During the previous year, Lucas had been given Ev's old Sony Digital Mavica, which recorded images onto a floppy disk. Remember those? Lucas quickly mastered the boxy camera with its various "creative" modes, and he took numerous photos of everything from the people and dogs at the show to the goods for sale to subjects as simple as an "S" hook or dog leash on the ground.
