I have one of those little antique wooden Kraft cheese boxes stuffed with assorted snapshots, and this morning Trudy said, "why don't you use some of these", when she pulled out some Elephant pictures I decided okay, Elephants it will be. About ten hours later after much sorting, editing, enhancing, cloning, resizing, stitching, lightening, darkening, sharpening,(and that's not easy with these old matte pics), Here are some from over the years, going back as far as 1964, hope you enjoy them!!!!,,,,,I want a raise!!!!
