Picture taken in 1987 with a disposable camera on a fall trip to New England with a friend. I put all the prints into a little photo album which, miraculously, also included all the envelopes of negatives. Twenty-some years later, I ran across the album and took the negatives to Target for processing onto a CD, so that I could have the images in digital form. Processed in photoshop for sepia tone and vintage feel.
I was going to call this The Old Cobbler but, on closer inspection, he looks like he would be young enough for me to date, so we will have no disparaging remarks about age. As life like as he is, however, this fellow is maybe two feet tall and sits plying his trade on a table at the Shelbourne Museum.
Here is a copy of the original photograph that I took in 1987 of the display. In order to give the image a vintage look and perhaps even to make it appear to be a photo of a real person, I did a bit of digital manipulation.
By the way, it looks really good in a walnut frame!
