I complained last week about images where you can’t see her face. No complaints this time. This is one of those amalgamation images were she wasn’t at this location and it wasn’t the same day as the other photos, but how could I not take this photo?
I mean, look at her. That face. Those eyebrows. That nose. That hair.
Another from the negatives that were very overexposed and difficult to scan.
Recovering that smile was worth it, once again.
One last image of Beth facing into the sun, covering her eyes with her hand.
This is like the image from the Durham Museum that reminded me of an image Dorthy Shepard took.
There is another one of these. I will post it tomorrow.
She’s been on my mind all day. Constantly.
The original image was really overexposed, so it was hard to recover. The over-the-top burning to recover the image gives it a weird look.
Still, look at that smile. It’s worth it just for that.
You can barely even tell it is her, the image was so poor.
But, again, it was worth taking.
Again, an image where you can’t see her face. Still, worth taking.
Obviously these are all extremely similar, but I’d thought I’d post all of them.
Not a great alignment, but I still love it
I will post only black and white images this week. All were taken with a film camera at high ASAs. All of the original images were in Maine, and the outer images were in Rhode Island.
Of course, all have the Atlantic Ocean in the background, and all are great memories.
Beth was maybe 26, or so, in the original photos. I’m sharing two different versions of this photo, because I can’t decide which one I like better.
