afternoon project  
Ted and I walked about a zillion miles this afternoon, and then I came home and thought I'd give restoring an old photograph of my grandparents a try. I've been wanting to do it for years, and have tried on and off, but not until I took the photography class did I learn how to actually /do/ it.

Do I detect the same smile that you have on your grandmother's face?

*I* think so. I do not look like my grandmother did, but in that picture, I think she looks like me. :) Or I look like her. :)

You have her cheeks!

Nice picture! Not so formally arranged as I'm used to seeing pictures from wayback then. And yes, if you'd put on that hat and coat and gotten a picture in the same pose I certainly wouldn't have been able to see the difference :)

It was taken sometime in the mid 1930s, we think. Not before 1934, because that's when they met. :)

I would dearly love to /get/ a similar hat and coat and get a picture of me in that pose. :)

Wow. That's a great picture - I love the informal Guys-and-Dolls feel to it. And your grandfather was good-looking in an Irish way. :)

Wow, I'm impressed. You used Photoshop, yes? I didn't realize photography classes covered photo restoration as well; something to bear in mind as I scan my grandmother's photo albums.

She does look like you -- and she has a great hat.

Nice work on the restoration. Can you go further, or does that introduce more artefacts than it removes?
