(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 262: My Four-Generation Picture

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Richmond family photograph collection passed to me by my mother, or taken by Linda or me in the 1970s:

This is one of the only four-generation pictures I have with myself included.  Pictured, from the left, are:

*  Emily (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977), my maternal grandmother
*  Lyle L. Carringer (1891-1976), my maternal grandfather
*  Lori Lee Seaver (1974-....), my oldest daughter
*  Randall J. Seaver (1943-....), moi
*  Betty (Carringer) Seaver (1919-2002), my mother.

This picture was taken in May 1975 at our present home in Chula Vista.  We were celebrating Lori's first birthday, her baptism, and buying our house.

Unfortunately, we were using a small camera that took small square pictures and the prints were quite washed out after decades of sitting in the envelope.  I scanned them several years ago as 600-dpi TIFF files, and then saved them, and used auto-color, to try to return to original colors.
