Talking Attributions....

I have been studying these people for so long now and, of course in great detail, that I have begun amusing myself with attributions about the individual people and the who, what, and why of them. While I am still uncertain about many, and still trying out theories about them, it has suddenly struck me who two of these people are and what they are about.

From somewhere, I'm not certain, I recall that women in America, during this time before the sufferage movement, observed certain rules of etiquette that might help us discover them. I recall that young, unmarried women wore their hair down and rarely cut it, whereas older married women always wore their hair shorter and certainly up. The one exception to the marriage-hair rule was the spinster who eventually felt too much a spectacle and began wearing her hair up, even though she may not yet be resigned to actually cutting it, almost in recognition of her acceptance of the spinster life. If anyone is lost, I suggest that you review "Music Man" or even the later "Carosel". And, anyone who may have actually studied womens history should speak up because this may just be some fractured memory of too many Hollywood generalizations and characterizations for the benefit of character development or plot.

So, examining the left-most 'young' lady, note the quite high behive hair-do which is 'up' but certainly requiring a lot of longish hair, appears to be a spinster, probably the town's librarian. Next to her, and person whose true sexuality has bothered me from the beginning, we have yet another somewhat older, less attractive and, dare I say, more masculine lady with again the behive hair, again suggesting a virtuous spinster. She may, perhaps, operate the town's Rooming House and give piano lessons on the side. Together they look gosipy, but always within the bounds of proper public behavior. At first I thought that the younger was whispering in the older's ear. Now though, I like to think that she is actually nibbling on her ear as the picture really suggests.

Well, 3 day weekend for me, so time-out. This story may or may not be resumed. Go ahead and add to it if you care.

As the joyus couple walk down the green mile, all the groom could think was
"there is a woman growing out of the top of my head!"

Jill, this photo just seems to invite goofiness. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

My hat goes off to those who accepted and followed through with this contest challenge. Colorizing is not my thing and when I looked at this picture, my only thought was "Holy Smoke that's one tough picture..." Having just colorized a simple shot for a client and spending several hours trying to do a great job for them, I'm glad I elected to stay away from one with "...with all those details!"

Again,

Janet

This was tough, but hey! What a way to learn!

This was my second try at colorizing and I experimented almost endlessly

still didn't see a fish...
does this mean I'd fail the inkblot test?
