My beautiful mother before I was even a twinkle in her eye. . . She is still beautiful. . .

A restored photograph of my mother. This was in about 1954, before she was married, before I was born. This was taken out in the desert probably near the Colorado River on the California side.

Dec. 27 Feminine Intent

Restored in Photoshop using a LAB MODE sharpening technique and curves in blend modes.
