New Images Photography

My Mother

What good is a blog without a picture of mother. Here she is in the 1950s.

Don’t know how old she was then, but I’m guessing in her late 20s.

My favorite part of this retro image is the diving board that she leans against.

I can remember as a kid almost all pools had a diving board. Now they are a liability, and very few pools have them. I miss them. Noting better than doing a flip off of a diving board.

This picture was scanned from an 8X10 photo. I had to touch up the top left corner in Photoshop because there was some damage to the photo.

What better time than now is it  to dedicate this blog:

To Estelle, my mother
