Welcome to Michigan

After 7 hours in 2 big aluminum tubes and a long drive we are back where we started to visit with family & friends. We had dinner near by our hotel and were greeted by the sunset above. My other first impression is that it’s soooo greeeeen. As a Californian used to “golden” hills, it’s hard to believe the abundance of green.

Photo Restoration

As I learn more and more Photoshop & Lightroom techniques the work of restoring older photographs has become easier. This photo is of my dear wife and her family as they came to America on the SS Maasdam or Ryndam (we’re not sure which name is correct) out of Rotterdam. She’s the cutie in dark glasses. Bringing it back to B&W from the yellowed print was easy enough and bringing out more detail made it look almost new.
