“A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime.” - author unknown
Grandpa’s car was eventually parked up behind the old farm-house. It was no longer drivable, but I do remember driving it, and Grandpa home from town on the occasional Saturday night when he had been in town a little too long. It was our time to visit, and lots of time he sang to me was we drove down the dirt road to the farm. He wanted me to sing with him, and I eventually learned the chorus of some of his old wartime songs!
As the quote above states, memories can last a lifetime, and photos like this brings those memories back to mind, and bring a smile to my face. Photos are a great tool for awakening our memories and bringing a smile to our face, and I love to go back through old photos for those smiles.
This image was copied from an old slide, then color enhanced with photoshop and a blur layer added. I have always like the photo because of it’s memories, but it did have some problems. After reading about artistic blue on Kateyestudio I thought I would dig it out and give it another try. I am happy with these results: I like the deep color of the car and grass, the blur around the trees and edges, it is as if the wind is blow by the movement in contrast to the car.
Let me know what you think.
