What a Transformation

I'm not sure who this picture is, the back says "Mrs Butterfield, 1469 Coronado, Long Beach CA".  I'm thinking it might be Mary Indiann Butterfield.

The original photograph was bent, torn & covered in mold.  After I restored it, I decided I wanted to color it as well.  I think it's such a cute photo.

Nice Recognition

In October I submitted the restored photo of my Grandpa Lender & my dad (as a baby) to Adobe Photoshop.  They had asked for people to submit examples using Photoshop & were going to choose 10 of those submissions to display in their office in San Jose.  Six Hundred & Fifty-Six people submitted projects, some submitted more than one.

Last week I received an email telling me that my photo had been chosen.  While I don't receive any "prize" for being chosen,  it's really nice to know that a huge company like Adobe likes my work.
