When you were in art school, you did a little B&W darkroom dabbling. So, my guess is that you overlayed 2 chosen negatives and since you were relatively new at this chemical processing you got this wonderfull all-over raw umber tone. Allen and I is a composite portrait of a picture of your grandmother in her youth, next to a beautifully picture you took of your coming of age little brother during a vacation by the sea. It migth be some other permutation of your loved ones as well. O by the way, this is gorgeous!

Elise, I like the place your imagination went.
I think it is 1984. I was at Penland school, like an art school but different, and no I didn't take the picture, someone else did. This was a photo of a boy I knew then, that I have sadly lost touch with. We used to eat all of our meals together, and he was my friend. Now looking back at it, so many years later there are so many more layers in the photo, that I was unable to see until now. Nice to go back to that place with new eyes.
