Dreams and Books

Do dreams come from books or do books come from dreams? This idyllic childhood snooze is from the late 1950’s. Can one still get patterned upholstery fabric like that?

I was a little in love with the ruined pink and yellow colors of this old slide but it didn’t shape up well when I tried to recover realistic color information so I converted it to black and white. After a series of tweaks I was more than happy with the results.

Before and after. Click for big.

Merry Christmas 1

Christmas celebrations turn up in all slide collections, and some of the most fun people pics are among them. This has been a favorite for a long time.

There were a few nice enhancements I could add to this image. I removed the plant from behind the man’s head and after a short hesitation, decided the flying saucer should go too.
