Uploaded: March 01, 2007


I was going through some old photos that I had taken approximately 30-yrs. ago when I came across this one. I was about to throw it away but then decided it deserved a chance. Scanning, cropping, layering, filters, & other effects applied using HP image zone, PI, PSP9, & PSE. I will attach the original scanned image. (DD) <><
