I think most of you will remember me telling you about my Dads Father and the photograph that I restored as they had very few photographs left as their home was bombed during the war.
Well yesterday A friend was trying to restore one of her families pictures and I couldn’t help myself in playing with it to help her out. I did get it looking better and then I recalled her saying that she would have loved to see it coloured so I gave it a go, I’d never attempted to colour an old black and white photograph but I figure if you don’t try you will never achieve.
The result was really good, obviously I couldn’t show her photographs as I haven’t asked permission so I then set to and did one of my own families.
I’ll show you the before and after so you can see the difference.
My Mam with my eldest brother Alan the Original Photograph.
The restored and coloured Photograph
I didn’t remove all of the blemishes purely because I wanted to leave some of the old character intact.
