Niece

Oakland Zoo, 2006.

I will be traveling to New York this weekend for my niece's birthday. She turns 8. From the time she was born, my siblings and I made a commitment to get together every year for her birthday. I wish we lived closer to each other. It's sad to know that I cannot be there to experience her life as she grows up. Instead, I find comfort in capturing moments such as this on every visit.
