Here is the photo my brother Greg sent me from his iPhone one Sunday evening a couple months ago, after phoning me excitedly from his garage to tell me of the unexpected treasure he had just 'unearthed.'
Greg knew I would be just as excited as he was at his discovery. He was right. Mom had put me in charge of dealing with family photos and memorabilia.
Here's what I did with it the other day:
I paired the day planners with a favorite photo of Dad, taken about the same time period, which Mom continues to carry in her wallet, describing it thus:
"It looks like he just got the better of somebody
and he's waiting for them to figure it out."
I added an old pen of Dad's...he always had a collection of nice ballpoint pens, and for most of his 50 year career he wrote everything long-hand. Dad had the most elegant handwriting I've ever seen!
Thank you for this, Greg!
Linking up with Friday Finds, and Beyond Beyond - where we've been playing with Curves and Levels to get the effect of the popular Instagram 'Rise' preset. I thought it would be perfect for that 70's feel. And you know what? I think this is representative of my style (if ever I could be nailed down to just one!)...something else Kim has been talking about lately.
I did try both of Kim's recipes, and ended up with the Levels method for these particular images, as they had not much color to play with. Then I added a touch of kk_magictexture2bl (Overlay blend mode - 14%)
