Restored Photo -What are your Thoughts!

These belong to Su Leslie that has a knack for taking awesome photos!

The Doctors In

I have some photos that I worked on, I was asked by Ann’s Words to see if I could attempt to repair the only photo she has of her great grandfather. I replied to her right before I had to enter the building for that delightful meeting yesterday saying, I would take a look at it after the meeting I had. The photo has deep layers missing from the gentleman’s right eye.  I can relate, while some old photos can be brought back, yet even with Merlin and Harry Potter casting spells can not put humpty Dumpty back together -it is a reality that must be faced.

To jump the track for the moment, I remembered I received that third blogger award that I need to attend to and two days ago I noticed I had this new message. “You’ve been chosen as one of today’s nine blogs in That’s So Jacob’s Ninth Month Blog Challenge (http://www.thatssojacob.wordpress.com)! I challenge you to find nine blogs you find interesting and give them a comment to brighten their day…well, eight other blogs and mine 🙂 Copy this message in your comment and enjoy your new blog friends!”,

I am still debating on this one.

Melanie, my beautiful friend I have some more for you to look at.

Out of the Office -I just wish it was for Fishing

So today at 1 PM CST I have this meeting with two state workers to discuss possible classes and reenter the workforce. I hope it involves letting one be creative utilize one’s brain and or to write, but I have a feeling not.

So in the meantime, please enjoy my last post WITHIN THE SHADOW OF DARKNESS if you have not already read it -it just might frighten you.

And for other readers, I do have some retouched photos and I know Melanie really enjoys seeing old photos brought back to life, I hope other do as well.

This comes from Ann’s Words

This Morning – A Brief post!

Good morning everyone, I hope all you are doing good and having a good day or evening.

This morning I opened my email and I got a reply back from one that I sent out on August 6th of this year.

The message:

“Hello, Michael, yes I am the person you are looking for.    I did not respond as we found your Blog found too much information about us, that we would appreciate you deleting. I would correspond with you but would not like to see it on your Blog.  Much appreciate if you considered……”
This is from my sister, the one that I have been searching for, the good news is that I did find her, maybe there is something to my Uncle Joe calling me Sherlock.  So, to respect their wishes, I will have to delete some earlier posts.
The post that it will effect are:
and this one:
These will be the post that I will permanently delete from this blog.

Photos of Time Past II

Yesterday I go a comment about the photos I showed of the before and after.  The comment: “Thank you Michael, I find your work amazing. ……….”

No, I am not going to charge her!

If it seems that I am not as active, liking and or commenting this is why. I will try my best to weave in and out when I can. but in the meantime, I have some eye candy!

These all belong to Jackie Dinnis

chd3Partial fix1baI think most of you seen this one, and I did a bit more work on it. The file size is at 129 MB as of now. And I will say this one has been the tough one! The image is faded with many lines going through it,  so far I think it is shaping up. If you wish to see the first part of this one then read Photos of Time Past.

Original. Same person own

I have also been restoring a few more today. I will let the photos do the talking. This one had deep blemishes on the house and going through some of the hair lines,

Photo restoration -Preserving family history.

While I am still busy working on the second part of Family dynamics -A candid look into my Mother’s lifeI thought I would do a video of how to restore a photo, This will be one of many to come so be sure to check back often.

Is it time consuming? Yes, it is but there is no better way to preserve our family history. Most of us, have some old photos that collected dust, rips and tears and I will be showing you how I fixed several of my photos and some I did for my family. Some people charge anywhere from twenty-five dollars to seventy-five dollars and some charge per hour. Granted, there are some photos that no matter how hard we try to fix it, are lost. We could try a professional then we run the chance of a high bill and the photo not looking what we would have hoped for…..

I do hope you enjoy this first video. The video can bee seen here: Please like or leave feedback for me.
