The story starts as follows:
Shelly Beukes stood at the bottom of the driveway, squinting up at our pick-sandstone ranch as if she had never seen it before. She wore a trench coat fit for Humphrey Bogart and carried a big cloth handbag printed with pineappels and tropical flowers. She could’ve been on her way to the supermarket, if there were one in walking distance, wich there wasn’t. I had to look twice before I registered what was wrong with the picture: She had forgotten to put on her shoes, and her feet were filthy, almost black with grime.

Other information:
· Joe renamed the story from Snapshot, 1988 to Snapshot after consideration of his dad, Stephen King.
