Photograph Showcase: In the Light of the Window


Estelle typingEstelle Maffit Duval

This photo of my great grandmother would have been taken by her husband, my great grandpa Frank Duval.  I think the composition and light are exceptional.  I love all of the fine details, her posture and clothing, the beautiful typewriter with a fresh sheet of paper, the angle of the mirror, the lines of her neck, arms, and legs.  This may be one of my new favorites.

  1. I love her socks!! This should go up on the wall where you do genealogy research – in one of those old frilly frames. Aaah, nice.

  2. You are right; this is a gorgeous and beautifully composed photo.

    • Thanks Su. I am captivated by it. It’s a contact print. I wish it were larger so I could have a large shot to hang somewhere. Either way, I’m so grateful to have this little beauty.

      • It is stunning. Is it perhaps possible to scan it at very high resolution and get a larger print that way? I don’t know much about the technology but it might be possible. I can understand that you would love to have a larger print 🙂
