I am attempting to bring a "photograph" of a vanished technology into the present time. I made a sepia copy, and used a gradient mask to blend the copy with the colored original. The sepia represents an old image from the past, and the color represents the present. The "photograph" border was scanned from a 1940's print, and warped in CS3. The text on the "photo" is intended to emulate the type of captioning that was done on old photos.
