About This Image

Great cdv by a studio that was run by women. Three brothers in their velvet suits pose with a beautiful sailboat.This photo has gotten quite a bit of attention on the Internet after a Russian website on postmortems copied our cdv (you can see the specific flaws in ours that match up with the Russia image) without crediting it to us. Now it is mentioned hundreds of times on other postmortem sites, but to me it is clearly not a postmortem, but simply a nice image of three boys, no matter how uncomfortable they may look in their Sunday best and forced to pose for this photograph.
