Sunny Days Ahead

It's hard to clean up an old photo without a decent editing program. So this is the best I can do with this black and white from the fifties of my mother and sister at Vilas Beach.

It's not beach weather yet, but it's supposed to hit 60˚ this Sunday

    1. She certainly was, and looks pretty good for going on 95 today, Sandee. Geez, my aquatard is more modest than that, lol.

  2. This is such a cute photo, Jeanna! Great contribution for All Seasons, because not many go the black white antique route, but I get a kick out of being able to see the swimsuits of those days:)Is that you as a child? Wow, a different perspective: When I think of 60, I'm thinking, Oh, still light sweater weather, and am still taking my coat with me!Have a great 60 deg. weather week:)

    1. Thanks, J. I love black and white photos and movies. That is a photo of my sister who got swimming lessons at Vilas, I did not. Can you tell I still hold a grudge? Actually, this photo was taken before I was born, lol. I usually don't wear a coat if it's 40˚ or warmer.

  3. That was excellent editing. When I was little in the 1950s we went to Oceanside each year for a week. There are similar pictures with my mother and father. Thanks for bringing back some really good memories. - Margy

    1. Thank you, too cheap to buy the Pro version of a free program which just barely cuts it as is. I would imagine Oceanside in the 50s was more exciting than Vilas Park in the 50s, lol. Although they did have stage coach and camel rides around this time.

  6. Hi Jeanna, not an easy photo to edit, but you did a great job. I love your Mums cozzie! So different than the teeny weenie ones people where these days. Our weather has taken a step backwards and it's positively wintery today. Roll on summer!

  9. Awww... love it! I keep thinking I will make time to scan some of our old photos, but instead I just feel guilty about being too lazy to get anything done.
