This is a photo of my grandmother. I believe she is in her early twenties. People have often said I favor her - that's one of the best ways to get on my good side. For years I've wanted to recreate this photo with me as the subject. But over the years, when my hair was long enough I could never find anyone willing to try the hairstyle. Finally, now when I'm way older than she is in the picture, I found someone to help me out.
In the interest of full disclosure, here is the original picture. My hair stylist did a wonderful job, but I've been recovering from a lumpectomy (and perhaps was too stubborn about going back to work when I should have waited a little longer) and you can see how tired (ok, old, I look in this photo.) So, I decided it needed a little help.
Now, if I could just edit my face for real, life would be good.
