When Texas couple Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell stumbled onto a s-era photograph in a Dallas antiques shop some 20 years ago, they were startled to see a relationship that looked much like theirs: two men, embracing and clearly in love. As Dee Swann writes for the Washington Post , the image spoke to the couple about the history of love between men.

A few years ago I was shooting photos in Milan, Italy, the city where I grew up. It was a lovely sunny April morning. Blooming trees, a pleasant temperature in the air and smiling people walking in the bustling fashion shopping streets Milan is famous for. Spring was it at its best. I was shooting a picture of a nice young couple seated at a small table against the window inside the trendy Armani Cafe. They looked like perfect models for my unexpected photo: smiling each other, nicely dressed and so optimist in their natural way of being. I was ready to leave when my eyes caught another interesting shot.
The photo dated back to when same-sex relationships were illegal not only in the States, but in most countries across the world. The two collectors thought the photo must be one-of-a-kind, but soon after they found another in an online auction. So who did shoot the portraits of these lovers? The answer, according to the collectors, is that couples would get help from friends and family. Proof of this comes from some of the pictures collected in the book, depicting not just the couple but also — to use a modern term — their allies.
Consider this - you took an amazing photo for a reputed photography competition, however your entry was not accepted as the judges described the photo as a little dark. You know it is an amazing capture and with some editing, it could even reach the top 10 list. So, which tool would you use in this scenario? Adobe Photoshop, of course!
