At least I think that’s mom, lingering off to the side. Who else would be hovering so close as to let a sleeve (?) linger in the frame to be captured by the lens? This cute tyke looks a bit nervous. His hands were definitely in motion and that big pout on his face didn’t bode well for the whole endeavor. I think we are very lucky to have this portrait, don’t you think? The colorist did a marvelous job on his flesh tones and clothes. The sixth plate is resealed and comes in a whole case. It is in very good condition, but it has two little scratches, which you can see in the scan. They don’t show up as much in person. There are also some teeny spots here and there.
