Below, photos by Lois Cole of myself at ages 1, 2, 3, and 4. The age 3 photo includes my dad and two brothers, and is a second photo from Christmas of 1947, similar to the one which was featured a number of days ago. The original print was highly overexposed when printed, washing out most detail. Photoshop gave me the tools to achieve better contrast, redefining those areas, and thus providing a second legible snapshot that only existed potentially until now, of that pleasant-to-evoke day from yesteryear .
