Restored Photo

Originally uploaded by Mark Oehler

My wife is going through all of her mom’s photos to organize them and put them into albums. She is also using them to build a calendar for her mom and oldest sister (it’s for a Christmas present, so don’t tell). Some of the photos were in pretty bad shape so I have been going through and restore them back.

Even though this didn’t make the calendar, it did have quite a bit of creasing and discoloration. I love the pattern on the couch. I did cheat a little an removed the black cord.

The whole process make me want to go through my family’s photos to and do restores, too. There are a bunch of photos that my dad took in Hawaii during WWII. I never really knew he was the shutterbug he was back then until after is passed away.

I hope everyone has a very happy holiday season and can spend some time with family and friends. With any luck, you will make some photographic memories that can be restored in generations to come.
