My sister, Bobbie, is hugely into genealogy and has a wonderful collection of old photos. Recently, she posted this delightful one of our great grandmother and her sister. (I edited it to clean up some of the age spots)
(Here is the original scan)
This is one of those pictures that I would have squealed loudly about if I'd found it in an antique shop, it will be beautiful to work with. But to know that these girls are actually relatives??
I am thrilled to have it.
I saved it in a tinted version too.
Funny, when it was posted, facial recognition asked if we wanted to tag either me, Sissy, or her daughter, Shelli. Apparently there is a family resemblance?
Possibly in the shape of the faces. I find facial recognition fascinating. It seems to measure bone structure, distance between eyes, etc, not sticking to a passing similarity from hair color or style.
Bobbie also had this photo of our great grandmother (center) with our grandma (left) and her sister (right).
I brightened it up a bit too. I hope to do something with this one for our annual sister trip to the beach in October. I just wish I had that beach bag to take with me.
Thanks, Bobbie! I love the photos.
