That photo was the best photo I took that day. —Photographer Ara Guler

You and I had a little cottage. It was an ordinary summer day. You had been playing outside so you were tired and it was time for bed. You told me about the fort that you had built out in the woods by the river. So I asked if I could visit and you said when the sun came up in the morning, and I said goodnight Nadia, sleep well.
