I have been young, and now am old...Psalms 37:25

This is an old photograph that I scanned from my mother's album that I took back home with me after she passed away. The original which was the size of a postcard was getting very faded and had a canvas type finish. I had to work with it in photo shop to deepen the tone.

It was shot by a studio photographer who came to the house which they did back in those days.

Bonnie was 3 years old- 9 months and I was 10 months old..(The info was
written on the back of the print)...It is hard to believe that we were ever that young:) But it is fun to look back at these older prints and bring them back to life again.
