How funny that the photographer has a "floozy" statue in his wedding shots. I wonder if it was a joke, or it was significant for the time era?

Craig: I did not crop any of the image. I cloned the corners to match the rest of the photo. Thanks.

Good eyes, Nancy & Marsha. I looked for her in some of those other photos, too, but I guess not in the right ones. Or I didn't look hard enough.

The tip-off for me was that the tonality and texture of the "special relative's" skin are different from everybody else's (darker and shinier) and the same as her clothes and hat. It took me a while to put her in the same plane as the base but when I tumbled to the fact that she's only a bust it started to make sense.

Another tidbit: these photos are concocted. ("TITLE: Stereographs of staged marriage ceremonies")

I'm still deciding whether to give this a go or not. It ain't gonna be easy.

Craig.. I did not crop either. I made a selection of the photo area, and did a transform to stretch it out to fit the square.

If you look closely behind the left front palm tree you will see what looks like the base of a pillar that a statue or bust might sit on, but I like to think she is the crazy "floozy" aunt that always cuts up at family occasions. Everyone else is so somber!! arrrgh.

cathy,

yes, you'll notice my edit. i did catch this almost immediately after posting. you did such a good job you fooled me

and dee dee,

yours is cut off at the top. if you look at the picture frame in the background and the light (chandelier?) you'll see what i mean. but, if i've missed something here, why just bang me on the head and i'll shut up.

I agree - I have gone back and forth - make her look "real"
Or make her look like a statue!

I think I am leaning to the crazy "floozy" aunt

Even though she's clearly a statue, I dont think the small structure behind the plant pot is her base but I wont be penalising anyone for making it so, OR for making her into the floosy aunt

You'd think a staged picture would be less haphazard, its almost like there are several photographers and everyone is looking at a different one
