Who took the cover photo?

and why its so important!

I don’t know for sure who took this photo. It has to be one of two people. The two women in front of me ( me with the green coat and pink hat) are walking companions from the US. The person next to me appears to be a mystery pilgrim. And the two other walking companions were behind us. One of them took the photo, but each of them think it was her shot.

I did as much detective work as I could. I found the photo is each person’s photo stream. I saw that the photo was taken with a iPhone 5, which both of them were using.

I searched through all the pictures I could find that were taken by any member of this group. I found other pictures of this mystery pilgrim, and none proved her to be without a doubt anyone I knew. I love this picture. I also love both my dear friends who had their iPhone5’s out that day to catch such a marvelous shot. So, not knowing what else to do, they both got the photo credit.

Another friend worked on it to get it up to the parameters of a cover photo. And then I relied on a hired designer to make it look a bit more like a painting than a photo.

What else could I have done to solve this mystery?

I am a middle aged woman with Parkinson's Disease. When I was first diagnosed I spent a lot of time researching the disease. Seeing a video of a man in the advanced stages of the disease attempting to get out of his chair and then "freezing" as he tried to walk across the room got me off my butt and moving. Great adventures on the Camino de Santiago and with TEAM Pedaling for Parkinson's across IOWA, as well as the day to day adventures of life have lead me to writing. My first novel, a memoir, will be published early 2019. It is called, you got it THE RIBBON OF ROAD AHEAD. Living with the degenerative neurological disease Parkinson's, ULTREIA is a word that guides me. I have chosen it as the name of my business ULTREIA BOOKS. It comes from Latin and old French and means "unfailing courage". In the old days, pilgrims would call "Ultreïa" to each other as encouragement "Go up, go further!" Nowadays we would say "You can do this thing". It takes courage to live with Parkinson's. May I face each day with unfailing courage.
