  2. At first glance it looks as if the hair on the right side of his head has been inked it. I'm sure it was not but it looks like pen strokes.

  3. Yes, I think it's rather painterly. Enlarging it allows us to see all the various textures of damage.

  4. What a great idea to enlarge the photo in sections. There's still so much to see even if the photo isn't in the best of shape. This would be a fun option for any photo. Details could appear that might be missed in the original picture. I enjoyed all of the posts in your "surface wear...deconstructed" series.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it! For me half the fun of collecting old photos is when I get home and either look at them through my loop or enlarge them on the scanner. There's always something to be found that's not noticed upon the first view.
