Over the holidays I scanned some photos from my Grandma and my favourite so far is this one of my great grandmother. It was taken in Loimaa, Finland just before she left for Canada at around 1920. The best part of this snapshot to me is how candid it is: she's standing in an open market where no one else is posed. In fact, you can see that business is carrying on while the photo was taken as many of the other subjects are blurry.
I haven't spent a great deal of time restoring it yet (although it is already much better than the original) but I wanted share it regardless. Since the holidays to me are all about family, this photo seems an appropriate way to sum up the season.
Happy New Year everyone!
