A week ago, I rediscovered my medium format negatives. Scanning’s a bore, and I’ll have to think twice before I single out anyone of them and subject it to that procedure.
I took this picture in September 1996 with my Yashica-Mat 6x6 twin-lens reflex camera. Cora was five years old then, just about the age of the girl in the foreground, and hey, she happened to have the same kind of mouse as this kid’s holding. Life is full of coincidences.

It is a snapshot, like all of my photos. Yet it has a formal quality which makes it stand out of most of the rest, I think. Anyway, it’s one of my all-time favorites.

Yes, the similarity is striking, isn’t it? I could swear the little girl was Cora, but why would she seek the company of this stranger? After all, it can’t be my wife (who doesn’t want to be on pictorial record).
