I’m pretty sure I was able to make the AUTHOR PHOTO above downloadable. I think if you click on the link you’ll get the file but being my own webmaster, that’s proving a challenge. So, please message me if this doesn’t work and I’ll send the file. You are welcome to use it but please share the love and credit the photographer.
