Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D600
Lens: Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

I gave this to my sister Nora when she was 5 years old and I was 10. I bought it while on a Girl Scout trip to Savannah, Georgia. She was so sad that I was leaving her so I spent all of my allowance on this souvenir to bring back to her. It has been displayed on her dresser for over 50 years. One ear is held on with a pin and I think it had a ball on the end of the nose at one time.

Nora passed away in 2019 and I miss her so much. My Brother-In-Law gave this to me a few months ago because she told him it was to come back to me. The image is nothing special, however this little Elephant is very special and much beloved.

What a wonderful story and image. Sisters' connections are one of the best IMO.
