I've been sharing a lot of old photos that I've recently extensively manipulated on the computer. So when I stumbled across this one I thought it would be nice to share a really old one that's barely edited at all. Just cropped, and brightened a wee bit. It's called Three Generations. And every time I come across it wandering through my photo folders I'm tickled by these three "faces," and the straight lines the greenery makes behind them. The arrangement could be more interesting, but there's also something old-fashioned about this picture. As if they'd been sitting unmoving like folk had to do for the earliest photos, waiting until exposure was complete. I could also do a little "clean-up" painting out in the lower left of the wide open bloom and lower right corner. All that said, though it's an admittedly flawed effort I still enjoy looking at it.
