  1. I did a double take when I saw the date of this photo! At first glance Estelle’s hairstyle had a very 1960s look to it! Anyway, she was very pretty. I’d love to learn more about who she was.

    1. Thank you EmilyAnn! Estelle is my great grandmother. She is the photographer for many of the family photos I have. She was a photographer by profession and hobby. It has made our family story so much richer.

  2. Yes, I concur. The composition and quality of the older photos in your blog that I have seen do have that professional touch. It’s very different from relatives who had a box camera and took pictures. Photography and taking pictures are two different activities.

    1. Yes, they are. Snapshots are wonderful but candid photos taken by a professional have a little something extra. I feel very blessed to have so many lovely shots taken by my great grandparents.
