The Ghost of Christmas Past

Each year for the past 26 years, Huntsville, Alabama’s Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theatre has presented a musical version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  My wife has both acted in and directed previous productions.  In 2015, she assisted the costumer and designed and built a new costume for “The Ghost of Christmas Past.”

The 2015 Director, Jeff White, who is a professional photographer, took hundreds of great pictures.  One, of Christmas Past in action, caught my eye and I decided to see what I could do with it using Photoshop and the Topaz Simplify plug-in.  One effect that I applied converted the photo to a pen and ink style.  I like the result and want to share it with you:
