And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God...

Romans 12: 2

The original picture was in color but after I scanned it, I worked with it in photo shop to convert it into sepia and I like it better now.

The original photo also had a strand of hair that got into a section of the print
when it was developed and the photographer's wife at the studio said we
could come back and get it fixed at that time but we never did until just today I
repaired it in photo shop 42 years later:)...I also cropped the picture to bring it in
closer as the original was rather distant.

    What a warm and touching photo, Andrea. It is very beautiful, and you looked just as magnificant back then as you do today! You have matured and developed into a smashing 60-something lady. And I also love this photo of the younger Andrea, with all the innocence and sweetness of youth. Your gown and veil are also marvelous, and look smashing in sepia. Very professional processing job!!!!!
