Here's another example of a photo that I like just as it is. It's scanned from a slide, and it's not clear to me if it was ever color or a black and white that got really weird with age:
But I love its odd, pinkish hue, if not the billion teeny dust scratches that cover it. I removed some from this version, but it took hours to achieve even this.
I love the expression on my mom's face - there are very few pics that show her like this, and it's a rare pic in which she reminds me of myself as a teenager. She was a teenager here, too. There's something so sweet about her necklace, and the pink of the photo, and the way she's standing. I love it.
