I’ve been scanning a lot of old photos of my grandparents and their friends and children. I had been looking for this one for quite some time and was so happy to find it. Even if it wasn’t exactly as I remembered.
There were a lot of scratches, strange dots and tape from other photos sitting on top of it. As well as the added hair gifts from my cats to the scanner.

It’s definitely not perfect (I tend to like the old look of it and wanted to keep some of the flaws), but I did manage to get it cleaned up and also to bring out more features. Mostly a lot of clone stamping, spot heal brushing and fiddling with the filters.
I can’t wait to get it printed.
