Howard Louis Bailey in 1977 at Blue Sea Lake. Howard took up photography to have something in common with his father-in-law, and he came to love it. Throughout our childhood he tortured us with taking photos, photos, photos (especially on Christmas morning, when all we wanted was to get at the presents), and he had a darkroom, won awards at the local camera club, and spent quite a bit of time entertaining himself while visiting the family cabin in Quebec.
