Before she died, my Mom was sending me heirloom family photographs to digitize. It has been a while... perhaps it wouldn't be too much to ask my Dad to continue sending me batches to play with...
This is a high quality scan of a photo of my paternal Grandfather as a young man posing on his farm in Eastern Wisconsin back in the early 30's. One of my favorite things to do with old photos is to closely examine the details -- check out that car! And the chickens.
This is my digital repair. I cloned out the age spots and fold marks and reintroduced a higher level of contrast. Seriously... Photoshop is the most addictive fun. I must have made half a dozen versions of this photo so far, each a little different.
Some day I hope to make a scrapbook of these photos. When I get a little spare time, LOL!
