My step grandmother left some unexposed films.
Gunnar converted them to black/white.
I fiddled with it in photoshop and found this early 20th century very young man.

The look of this estate in the day is wonderful. We use the sepia to make the modern look old, but an original view in sepia truly makes the past come alive!

Extraordinary photo - He looks lost, but this is a very nice sepia scene!

Amrita said...

Both Gunnar and you are both so creative, ingenious and talented.
This is a classic photo.

I have a trunk full of old b/ws but all thumbs with them

oh! felisol!....oh! elegant!
love terry

Constance said...

WOW! That's gorgeous! The whole picture (house, boy, etc) have the ability to transport you back to another time!

Thanks for the recommendations on the Churchill books. I haven't heard of them but may have to see if I can find them at our library.

Whether people totally agree with a Political Leader's platform, I am certain that Churchill and Roosevelt were placed into position by God for their roles in World History! I can't imagine the outcome of someone else had been in those positions!

Have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for checking in again, and for praying for specific things God puts in your heart to do. In Bacolod city I have two adjoining houses joined in the middle by a sun porch which serves as our breakfast and snack area. First house is where husband and I first lived and raised our family, and where first born now lives with his wife and son. When we returned from Thailand, we moved to second house, called Beulah House of Prayer, which we used to have prayer for the nations. Now, Beulah House, while we were away for a year became badly eaten by termites. Never noticed it, until we had expert termite treatment early this year. Now comes the expensive part of repairing many portions. Time and finances needed. Thank you for praying. It is symbolic of what the Enemy wants to do in my family life. Hidden damage. God bless your heart.I need loving and committed prayer partners to pray with me. You are a God sent.

Kjær Elise,

Jeg er trist jeg har ikke fått bak til deg tidligere. Jeg er slitt ut å prøving til å ta vare på Julie etter hennes surgeries, ungene, hus, kolonialhandel, vaskeri, og alt ellers. Jeg vet ikke hvordan enkle foreldre gjør det !

Onsdag var helvete. Doktorene burde ha beholdt henne på sykehusovernatten. Hun har vært slik syk og i derfor mye smerten. Hun kunne holde ingenting nede for merenn et minutt eller så, samt smertemedisin. Hun måtte slutte spise og drikke fra og med tirsdag natt. Surgeries var onsdag morgen. Det var sen torsdag morgen før jeg kunne få henne til å beholde noe som helst i hennes mage. Hun gjør mye bedre nå men enda i derfor mye smerten. Hun er frustrert hun er ikke leger kvikk. Jeg gjør kunner som jeg kan til å berolige og til å trøste henne, men jeg føler meg slik hjelpeløs. Å seing noen som jeg elsker derfor mye i smerte skader merenn noe som helst i verdenen ! Jeg ønsker jeg kan bar det for henne.

Takk deg derfor mye for din tanker og bønner ! Og Altmuligmannen klokkeide var stor. Jeg kjøper henne liten Altmuligmann klokketing all det

Jeg håper deg at Gunnar og Serina er all brønn og glad.



I know that is probably all incorrect, so here it is in English.....

Dear Elise,

I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you sooner. I am exhausted trying to take care of Julie after her surgeries, the kids, house, groceries, laundry, and everything else. I don’t know how single parents do it!

Wednesday was hell. The doctors should have kept her at the hospital overnight. She has been so sick and in so much pain. She couldn’t keep anything down for more than a minute or so, including pain medicine. She had to stop eating and drinking as of Tuesday night. The surgeries were Wednesday morning. It was late Thursday morning before I could get her to keep anything in her stomach. She is doing much better now but still in so much pain. She is frustrated she is not healing quicker. I am doing all I can to reassure and comfort her, but I feel so helpless. Seeing someone I love so much in pain hurts more than anything in the world! I wish I could bare it for her.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers! And the Tinker Bell idea was great. I buy her little Tinker Bell things all the time

I hope you Gunnar and Serina are all well and happy.

Awesome - I love your photo! Where is it?

Jim said...

Felisol, your 'young man' picture is a nice one. I believe that fellow is a garden sculpture, a 'yard boy.' I would like to have him in my yard.

Kris said...

Sooooo pretty.

I want to live there.

Can I live there?

I also want to find pictures like that. <3 Fantastic.
