Photograph of Forrest Whitaker sitting in a boat and rigging up his tackle while fishing on Big Bear Lake. The boat spans the width of the foreground and extends back towards center. Wood plank seating stretches horizontally across the image. Along the bottom edge, a cushion sits at center atop a seat. Forrest Whitaker sits in the back of the boat at right. He faces towards the camera, but looks down at the tackle he is rigging. Beyond the boat, Big Bear Lake stretches into the distance. A nearby shore stands in the background at left.
Forrest Whitaker, Abraham Whitaker, Agnes Whitaker, H. H. West Jr., and Mertie West sit in a Willys-Knight car in Yosemite National Park. Forrest Whitaker sits in the driver's seat. The two men wears hats, while the women and the boy wear what appear to be visors.
H. H. West's brother-in-law, Forrest Whitaker, poses with trout caught in Grant Lake. He holds a fishing pole and wears a hat. The fish are on the rocks in front of him, and some are in and on top of a basket that is also on the rock. There are rocks throughout, and the lake is in the background, along with a mountain. There is a boat on the lake. There is a light streak at the bottom of the image.
Photograph of Agnes Whitaker, Mertie West and Forrest Whitaker standing at the top of a driveway leading up to the Siemsen's cabin at Big Bear Lake. They are seen from a low-angle view. A wide dirt drive, lined by loose rocks, enters frame along the lower right edge, curving slightly as it slopes upward towards center. At right and atop the small incline, stands, from left to right, Agnes Whitaker, Mertie West and Forrest Whitaker. All 3 face slightly left as they look to the camera. Behind them, the ground slopes upward again. A cabin (partial view) stands behind them, entering frame from the right. To the left of the cabin, Elizabeth (left) and Al (right) Siemsen stand amidst a cluster of loose rocks. At far left, building materials sit in a pile. Trees line the background. Opaque white patches occupy the lower left and lower right corners, dissipating as they extend upwards along their respective edges.
Photograph, from left to right, of Mertie West, Agnes Whitaker and Forrest Whitaker sitting in their boat as they launch from the wharf and into Big Bear Lake. The hull of another boat sits in partial view along the bottom edge in the foreground. Behind it, in the near distance at left, the boat occupied by Mertie West, Agnes Whitaker and Forrest Whitaker enters frame from the left. It appears to sit on a ramp as it angles into the water from the left. Mertie West stands towards the front of the boat at left. She is in profile, facing right. Ahead of her, Agnes Whitaker sits at center. She casts her gaze downwards as she shifts supplies around the boat. At the boat's stern, Forrest Whitaker sits. He faces slightly right and tinkers with the boat's motor. Beyond them, Big Bear Lake stretches across the image and into the distance. Silhouetted mountains rise from the opposite shore. Opaque, wide, white patches occupy the lower left and lower right corners, dissipating as they extend upwards along their respective edges.
