Wedding Photo of Jack and Jean Kearns

Photoshopped. Removed some of the damage. Feel like I took it too dark at the edges but did so to camouflage some of the intense damage that couldn’t be comfortably corrected without altering the photo. Susie’s dress was too damaged for me to comfortably correct without rebuilding it, which I am usually disinclined to do. […]

Photo of Jean Playing on Car

Cars were big back then. Jean Hennesy is between perhaps 13 and 15 in the photo. I’d place her as being about 14 and this picture taken circa 1945. Family gave Buddy, her brother, as being the boy in the photo but Buddy is 3 years younger than Jean and there appears to be a […]

Photo of Murdock Middleton and Clarinda Simmons and family

Original image, a multiple generations xerox. Courtesy of Delores Tousineau. An attempt I made to clean up the image a bit. And then not leave well enough (kind of) alone, though the resolution doesn’t merit it. This family photo was made the same day as the above. No children were given but I’m going to […]
