Award-winning image captures the quiet love between sisters.
White Bear Lake hobby photographer Michael Lovett was watching his two granddaughters fishing on the end of a neighbor’s Lake Avenue dock when he captured this frame. In the image, older sister Iris is teaching sibling Lillian to fish. “A calm day. Clear blue sky. Two active granddaughters for the moment still and quiet. A perfect photo, I thought. And as I took the picture, I heard [Iris] explaining, ‘Sometimes you just need patience,’” Lovett says. “… This photo reflects a special relationship between sisters, who most of the time are best friends.”
“Sometimes a photo can capture motion and emotions, which we would otherwise miss—and create a record of the moments treasured,” Lovett says.
