I’ve been practicing my Photoshop skills. I did some very light fixing on this photo (left) and then did some fancy border thing which looked juvenile so I’m not posting that version.
This is my Grandfather and I don’t know the story behind the photo or even when it was taken. It’s one of the huge batch I’ve been scanning.
He worked for the forest service in northern California and SE Alaska, so I like the idea of him hanging at Joshua Tree (pure speculation) esp. in a sweater, tie and slacks. As I was working on this, I noticed the tie and decided we needed a close up of that.
Also he’s got his cigar, something I remember about him. If he was still alive he would be 102 next month.
