I found an old roll of black and white negatives in my mother's estate and scanned the images. This lady was identified as my great grandfather's second wife...(first wife had died). Her name was Maggie. This setting was somewhere in middle Tennessee.​  

I decided to give the whole thing a wash of sepia tone to give it that "bygone days" feel and then I took extra care to capture her friendly smile.

  1. The use of the sepia is a powerful effect - I plan to try it out. I like the composition in this as well as the way the pattern on her dress is echoed by the patterns of the foliage. Very nice!
