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.

    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, 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.
