standing tall

Another beautiful shot of my great-grandfather Paul, he was born in 1878, and died in 1946. He was the father of my grandmom, paternal side.
Look at the lovely painted background the (unnamed) photographer had in his studio! I guess yesterday´s shot showed him in his gala-uniform.
I put a lot of work in restoring this, so many scratches and colour lost, I left the original state of the picture as frame - would have been easy to cut it but I like it better like this .

Please respect my work.
If you want to use my pictures just contact me. I´m a nice one & it won´t hurt, probably.
