Not Ansley but E C Griffith - 1901 GAH

Postby Silvers » Thu Nov 11, 2021 10:52 am

A few years back and through good fortune I came across an original albumen photograph of the “Straights” at the 1901 GAH at Live Birds, and as far as I know it includes the only known original image of our hero Ansley who was one of the 22 Straights. The albumen photo is of course black & white and its detail is amazing! I've been fooling around with colorizing individual shooters in that picture and want to share one of E C Griffith of Pascoag RI who was the GAH winner with 18 straight in the shoot-off on the next day. As many know here that was with a 12-gauge Parker and I see it's straight gripper. Enjoy! Ansley missed the first bird in the miss & out shoot-off.

I've also colorized Ansley and he turned out great in 8 x 10 colored glossies but I'm unsure how to share it with our Fox enthusiasts while also keeping pirated copies from showing up on E bay etc. :roll: Actually there's enough detail to be made into something like a wall poster. Still thinking on how to share but also protect …..

Nice job Frank. I’ve often wondered what you were doing with that old picture.

Daryl you’re giving me too much credit Actually I bought a specialty program that does the colorizing in seconds and then I can fine tune the colors if wanted. Of course it works best with high detail B&W photos and the old saying about “garbage in, garbage out” applies. frank

Great job, Frank. Wonderful detail. Wearing cufflinks, a necktie and high collar to shoot!! The bulges from the Winchester LEADER shells in his pockets.
