Why does she not get older?
« on: 27/11/2009 00:57:07 »
Here is a not terribly recent pic of Mr and Mrs Geezer. Apparently this was prior to the invention of colour photography. (No, the geezer is not Peter Cook, although it could be Spotty Muldoon.)

Anyway, whereas the geezer in the pic only bears a vague resemblance to The Geezer, Mrs Geezer still looks exactly the same as she does in the pic.

As Neil (the Tupernator) would say, "Why's that then?"

The image is less faded now ...



I may have accidentally removed some acne when I tried to clean the dust spots from the faces  :)

I don't think so. Looks even worse than before.

The black & white film you used in the 1970s was probably overly blue sensitive, (if no correction filter was used).
 The blue sensitivity of the film makes red bits like lips and acne reproduce darker in the photo than they appear to the eye.

It was in the 1960s, but I have no blinking idea about the film and filters. The pic was taken in one of those "We take your photo" booths that heralded the miracle of instant photography.

What a lovely couple.. Perhaps it is the percentage of body fat that women have tends to ward off wrinkles longer.. LOL... fills out cheeks and less sagging etc.. if we loose that extra we sometimes then look more sallow and sunken in and aged...I don't know. Keeping well hydrated makes for very youthful looking skin also. Does she take good care of her skin and drink plenty of water? I am sure moisturizers go a long way to help! As our skin ages .. is it possible that she does a daily skin regime to properly nourish her face,,,etc?

Not wishing to be rude, but Mr Geezer may be now be viewing the world in soft-focus, which makes people look younger

In the United States, age-related lenticular changes have been reported in 42% of those between the ages of 52 to 64,
 60% of those between the ages 65 and 74, and 91% of those between the ages of 75 and 85.

Also if you see someone everyday then changes are less noticeable than if you hadn't seen them for years.

Well, not wishing to insult the Gezzer (although I will), Mrs Geezer had a head start on The Geezer. In other words, if you start with a pretty face, you are more likely to remain pretty than if you start with an ugly mush not so pretty face.

Yes! I think that must be it.

Yes. She is a babe! (Erm, she was 17 when this pic was taken.)
You should have seen her in her nurses uniform! She always had to carry an extra large thermometer.

The large thermometer wasn't necessary for taking temperatures. If the gentlemen patients became too "excited" she would tell them "That's enough of that!" and rap the thermometer on the offending appendage.

That's much better. Can you turn up the acne filter just a tad?

                                                                                       The dermatological treatment below is free …



Hairdressing and orthodontics are much more difficult and cost extra. :)

Can you shed any light on how to get a beauty like that to fall for a geezer?


Too much analysis would be dangerous!
