Forty-seven years ago. We stopped along the highway on what was more than likely a Sunday afternoon on our way to Grandma and Grandpa Drewes house. My Dad must have taken the photo, most likely it was taken in early January of 1964.
My baby brother (just about 10), me (on my way to age 13), my other baby brother (not yet 4) and our Mother (not yet 35).
Many of these old photos have faded over the years. After I scan them I take them into my Photoshop Elements program and enhance the color, and I fix any bad spots.
I wonder if it was cold that day? My baby brother is the only one that looks cold..he has hunched up shoulders..the rest of us look warm..and my coat is unbuttoned. Obviously we didn’t have very much snow that year because I can still see weeds in the ditch.
This area still looks the same..the trees are much taller. Nowadays there is way too much traffic to stop and take a photograph along this road, I know..I have tried. You have to find an approach or drive-way and pull off of the road and walk back. It is a “Scenic Byway”..but one of those that you have to enjoy out the window..because they didn’t allocate any funds for turn outs or spots to stop and take photos:(
