Family Visits and Old Family Photos

Sunday afternoon, we had a visit from Lovely Wife's Uncle, Cousin, and Cousin's son.

Lovely Wife's paternal grandmother, who was 94 (I think) passed away a few weeks ago.

Lovely Wife's Uncle was in town to visit his daughter and Cousin to Lovely Wife. (Confused yet?)

Anyway, he brought a few things for Lovely Wife and Sister In Law from their Grandmother's home in Rockwood, Tennessee.

One of the things he brought was an old picture of Keith and Patricia Morgan, Lovely Wife's parents.

This photo was taken in the late 1950s, but not sure exactly.

I scanned it and tried to color correct it and make it look better.

What a difference!

If that whole engineering thing doesn't work out for you, I think you could fall back on your photo skills.

Beautiful work on the color correction! I always have a hard time with that....any secrets you'd like to share???

Nicely done. I'm handy with Photoshop, too. But I would have used it to switch their heads around and have them holding a bowling trophy.

That color correction does wonders.

I just got a few pictures from my grandmothers estate. I'll try to post them soon.

It's mind blowing what can be done today to restore old photos - this one looks like it was taken yesterday (except for the fashions;-))
I bet Lovely Wife was happy...

Wow! Nice job. It looks like they are at a park in the winter time.

I love the picture...not a lot of distractions...just nice open space.
