The original image is a Vernon family photograph on a postcard though who is who has been lost to history. I love the juxtaposition of the old and the new, the horse-drawn carriage versus the automobile and the bicycle. I restored the photograph (it was faded and indistinct) partly by adding duplicate layers in Photoshop and experimenting with blends. Lastly, I added several of my own textures to produce the final ‘burnt’ effect. The desire to restore its glory inspired me to work on the image.
