Sunflowers in a Vase

[This essay was originally posted to "The Third Tale," a blog on Weebly. In transferring it I have updated and made corrections where necessary.]

This photo was originally a slide shot around 1995. I made a Polaroid neg from it in a slide copier in, maybe, 2001; in I shot that neg onto digital and filed it away.

Today I pulled out that digital shot, inverted the neg in PhotoShop, tweaked it, "hand colored" it (in PS, with the mouse), ran a filter on the background, and voila! Two hours I'll never get back! (But I'm mighty pleased with the result.)
