One of the true joys of having the time to go back through my archives at a more leisurely pace is uncovering the occasional gem that was hiding away. In this case one that has been unseen for over 50 years. I took this in my Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood in 1969, a place that was a photo-rich environment, and an area where I loved taking pictures every week-end as an escape from my regular job of taking pictures! (I love my work). This little girl was packing a pistol and an attitude to match. Her brother appeared to just be along for the ride. We know who’s the boss here, and with luck both of them are still alive and kicking.
