My dad (and friends?) enjoying a day at the beach while stationed at Lakehurst, New Jersey blimp base during the war.
I restored the old photo, desaturated the faded colors and added several grunge texture layers for effect.

Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.
