Although this was taken in Wellington , looking so rural it is unbelievable , I have done a Vintage Art Story with this old photograph , as always many hours of work , many layers of my photographs many tints and textures ……but I am loving this work so much .My Aunt was 95 years old in May ,incredible to have this capture of her in my Grandmothers arms ….
I remember the Tale my father told me of my Grandparents dog managing to sneak inside and gobble up all of the magnificent afternoon tea that my Grandma had so preciously made and had beautifully set out upon her tea wagon to entertain the ladies of their Political Party ….we used to screech with laughter because we always took the side of the pet , never my poor well to do Grandma …………..
