Relatives Visiting from Up State NY -1934

Inspiration for this photo came about from visiting the SHORPY site that has an amazing collection of photos from the 1890's through the 1960's.

Here's the link:

There are forms, colors and sensibilities in the past that just don't exist here in the early 21st Century and that is what I was trying to capture in this image.

 

Interestingly, I didn't do anything to the color, yet it has an almost hand tinted, black and white quality to it.
