Photo-editing Again

One of my great-great grandmothers; I tidied-up the image without making major changes. I know her name and a lot about her. She lived from about 1845 until ~1930, in Kentucky. She was a young lady (as teenagers were then called) during the Civil War: the family was able to conceal her riding horse from one rampaging army that pillaged the farm, but the next day the other side came and took the horse. Her husband died in the late 1890's and she wore mourning til she died decades later. This photo is probably to commemorate his death. My Mother remembered her in the 1920's, still in long black dresses.

I Swore I would Not View Yellowstone Through the Lense of my Camera..

However, I did take a few evocative, misty photos of some bison and early September snow at the Park.
