Picture of my family tree alongside with an early photo of my grandparents next to a encaustic collage which includes the same photo. Encaustic is a media that uses painted wax.

Needed to take the photo in natural light. Earlier attempts using flash caused reflections from the wax and the photo.

I am hoping this does not get disqualified. The rule is not totally clear but to me it was more about the arrangement of the items to convey the theme than the "picture of a picture". I looked at the one entree that was a photo of multiple old photos arranged and felt this photograph was similar in nature.

This has a Walker Evans or Dorothea Lange quality.
