Last Look: Camel

Sarah Betz, then 9, gets more contact than she expected when she offers a camel a carrot held between her teeth. She jumped back after the unexpected smooch, but the camel, which lives at Stump Hill Farms, got its treat. The camel was part of a first-century village re-created for Bible school at Perry Christian Church in Perry Township. This photo was published on Aug. 7, 1998 and has recently been displayed at the Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography as a part of the “Pictures of You” photo exhibit.

Last Look: Lake

The fishermen and boaters all have gone home. All that remains are their vehicles tethered to their moorings with oars neatly aligned nearby. The water has calmed from the boats that once cut paths through it as daylight turns to dusk on the placid waters of Sippo Lake in Perry Township.
