Default COLORIZE E C Griffith - 1901 GAH at Live Birds

A few years back and through good fortune I came across an original albumen silver 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 Ansley Fox who was one of the 22 Straights, all of whom are ID’d on the picture margin. 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 miss & out shoot-off the next day. As most here know Griffith fielded a 12-gauge Parker and I see it's straight gripper. Enjoy!

I've also colorized Ansley but I'm unsure how to share it with Fox enthusiasts in a photo copy or poster while also keeping pirated copies from showing up on web sites, E bay etc.

single or double click for full detail - check out the pattern on his trousers

thanks Frank

as for pirating - not much you can do - in fact some of the new photo editors have build in AI processing to make it very easy to identify and remove watermarks like your red lettering on this one. IMHO - that has no reason to exist EXCEPT to allow misuse of images -

the best hope is to only show very low resolution images that are hard to enlarge, but some technology can defeat that now as well

the old saying is "where there is a will, there is a way" seems to fit - its a real problem for professional photographers these days - image theft is everywhere,

Thanks, Frank. I'd enjoy this either colorized or in B&W.

I hope you can figure a way to show us Ansley, too.

Frank that's great as colorizing isn't easy to do well. You did a great job. They look like Filson wool trousers or bibs, mine are gray with the same pattern. They're 30 years old.

Parker was still promoting Griffith's win in 1915

Just for info that "Henry C" shown in the copied list of Straights is H. C. Koegl. His full name is included on the border of my albumen photo. Credit where due.

Also, Griffith shot at 28 yards handicap. Ansley was one of the three Straights who shot from the 30 yard pad.

Don`t remember the publication... I think in 1901 A.H. Fox was shooting for Winchester...
