Great shot. Perfect atmosphere. Love the contrast between her natural beauty and the machine beauty of the Rolls.

House of the southern style behind?.

More like Italian / Mediterranean style. The "style" most associated with the southeast US is antebellum.

Beautiful lady Zach.  So sorry for all the grief and sorrow this has caused you.

so i got that photo enhanced and colored, happy with the results

mecch, it's a packard, not a rolls



long story behind this picture, i heard about it for years but no one seemed to know where it ended up

black sheep aunt had it crammed down in a bag of pictures, she stayed with my father a few years ago just before i moved back to georgia, the bag was clear and i was packing up the stuff she'd left in the house and happened to spot my mom's face so i dug through that bag... she had a number of pictures my father had taken in the 60-70s... i took them all. i was pretty pissed at her for a long time. it was bent and tattered from being stuffed into the bag. there was a lot of bad blood between my aunt and my mother. and it was well known i was searching for that picture for years.

had i not taken those pictures, they would have been destroyed in a house fire about six months later. widely believed in the family to be an insurance scam, got my aunt a brand new house and quite a bit of money. also destroyed the last quilt my great grandmother made, my grandmothers singer sewing machine, and all the other family heirlooms dad had relented and let her take

but i got that picture out, so score

Im glad you got the pic!  A bit of luck.

My aunt had bad blood with the family and she had later in life marriage to a really rich guy and his kids hated my aunt and resented she got some of "their" money.  (He had been in love with my Aunt for decades, nevertheless.)  Anyway she was the keeper of all family pictures and documents.

Well she was an alchie and rather infirm as an old woman and when her husband died those kids came in and threw away almost everything saying they thought it was useless and "flood damaged" "old documents" of their father.  What bullshit.
