This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt has a wealth of directions in which to travel. I could have showed you a storefront, or people on a stoop, or even an old business, but since I already used all of those for previous posts I needed a new angle. I have been wanting to showcase this photo, and the prompt photo also has blurred movement on it, so here we are.
From the Rudd collection, you can just barely make out the little girl in this photo. The photo itself is about 2 inches by 2.5 inches. The exposure is terrible and I can’t tell whether it is due to time, exposure to the elements, or just bad photographic processing that is causing the image to be so darned dark. I remembered about a little program called Picnic that is available for free if you use Google+ (which I do) and wondered, what can be done to reveal what is hiding here?
And voila! We have a blurred but cute image of a child sitting on or standing by a garden fence, holding a stick or flower, with vines and a wide yard in the background. What a nice story it tells. I can see why the photographer wanted to capture this moment in the first place!
