Friday Flashback II

How did it get to be Friday already?! So, here's another blast from my past, and whaddyaknow, it's another b&w picture - of another sister! I took this in 1991 in the south of France, where said sister and my mum lived at the time. I would go and visit them for a couple of months every summer as a teenager, and enjoy long hot summers - the kind that just don't exist here. We would spend our days by/in the pool (what a life, eh?!) and on this particular day my sis saved some butterflies who'd gone for a swim, but then couldn't get out. I wish I could have filmed what happened after I took this picture; once they'd dried their wings, resting on her hands, they took off, circled around her a few times (saying thank you?) and then flew off. Such a great moment... sigh. Hope you have a lovely weekend mes amies!
