Most of mom's old photos have been ripped out of albums until they are quite damaged. But this one...not only bent through the center...it somehow managed to turn pink/red over the years!!!
With a bit of editing in Photoshop, I think I've managed to restore it quite nicely. Even the plaid on the shirt matches through the tear!
Photoshop is just so wonderful for giving back memories of things that were forgotten. Now, I can't recall the the walls were pink in that house, so my colors may still be off a bit. I'm not sure dad would have worn a burgandy shirt....but it was Christmas and mom is wearing green (too cute!)
In 1958, Grandma was my age (GASP!) and I swear she looks a whole lot younger than I do today! LOL! Mom and dad were only 28? Yikes...my oldest son is 28! They had 4 little girls, ages 7,6,4 and almost 3....I'm not a grandma yet (thank goodness!) The 2 little boys are our cousins and my 2 uncles are in the photo.
I'm the one looking bored, playing with a book. Colleen is on dad's lap. Elaine is probably putting on play lipstick, I remember we played with that a lot. And April is the cutie in the pink dress.
Photoshop not only fixes photos...it fixes memory!
