Sepia Saturday 197 - out of focus

My out of focus or blurred submission for this week's Sepia Saturday is a vintage postcard of an old lady. The scanning process seems to have enhanced the exposure somewhat, but even so, it's still not looking quite how I imagine the photographer intended.

  1. Hmmm...she seems somewhat foreboding in her stance but still there is a sweetness captured in the set dressing and her costume.

  2. Do you think the photo faded over time or do you think it was developed that way? I tried to enlarge it but it didn't get very big (Lightbox prevents it). It almost looks like she's in work clothes except for the lace tie around her neck. I think the mat around the photo is beautiful.

  4. Oh my, I can just make out, I think she's smiling! A great photo for this week's theme. I also like the artwork surround her photo, a very nice detail from the photographer!

  5. She does seem to be smiling, but it appears to be that secret "I know something you don't" sort of smile & I can't help but wonder what it is she knows . . . ?

  6. A sweet photo, perhaps a memento of mother?

  8. A great choice for the prompt. It is sad to think we know nothing about her, yet this photograph must have meant something to someone. .

  9. She seems to be smiling. It could be a kind smile or she could have just buried the body on the back 40.

  10. She seems a bit camera shy.

  11. It makes me want to be able to see her better. She has an enticing sneaky smile.

  12. I agree with most of the other commenters about her smile. Something mildly devious there, I think.
