Vintage photo Layout

Another find, this was laying in a basket of
forgotten things at the farm.
Mom said I could take it. Usually I just borrow them to photograph and return the originals.
This is the digital manipulation copy back to the black and white that the original print would have been.
 It is a photo of my Dad on one of his very first investment horses "Queen".  She was a registered quarter horse. He is very young here,
 maybe 20 or 21 at the oldest.
Years of laying under glass in a shed has turned it a lovely red and crème patina. I decided to scrapbook the original. Something I seldom do. But, really it is safer on a layout than back in another stack of forgotten photos.
 Note: I did not glue it to the background, but opted for clear photo corners to preserve the integrity of the original. It does have a printers mark on the back in very faded red ink.
Bo Bunny Heritage paper pack was all the perfect shades of patina to showcase this treasure.
