Take a Word--Childhood
I've been hoping to find a use for this wonderful old photo of children gatheres for their Christmas photo. The annual Christmas photo is a childhood experience that I'm sure most of us remember--fancy clothes, bright lights, Mom fussing with hair and collars...This photo is actually a stereopticon slide. I can remember looking at such slides at my grandmother's house at Christmas during my own childhood.
For those who don't know, a stereopticon is a viewer that takes two copies of the same slide and shows a 3-D image to the viewer--an early incarnation of the old Viewmaster, that I'm sure you all remember.
I found this slide at Wikimedia Commons, in their Christmas collection. I added a couple of gradients, a background texture by UR_2, some sheet music from the Graphics Fairy and some photoshop brushes.
Thanks vor visiting.
