Some of you may have seen an earlier post of my 84 year old father cutting my 5 year old grandson’s hair. Sandy Stewart gave me the idea to add this image (a different shot) in sepia tones. I also added the diffuse glow filter to give the image a “look back in time” feel to it. Thanks, Sandy, for your suggestion; it was a good one!
My father, a WWII veteran who survived the sinking of the Yorktown in the South Pacific, has been cutting hair since post war days. He has a collection of sweet potato labels which are scattered throughout his shop and a ton of other memorabilia on the walls. If you View Larger, you’ll see to Daddy’s left a photo of him cutting my son’s hair. My son, who is now 33 years old, was probably about the same age as my grandson in that picture. When Daddy showed my son the finished haircut by producing a little hand held mirror, Tom always put his hands over his eyes. He was too shy to see his cute little self up close like that! I love the way the generations are documented here and the way Paw Paw Taylor, as my son and grandson call him, is shown still working and still enjoying it in his golden years of life.
Hope you like this image, “The way it was and still is . . .”
