Lazy Wednesday - Again

Yep, I admit it, I am one lazy SOB! Which is why you only get one slide today. But it is from 1955, and it's a great shot of the moon rocket! Happily the photographer did not chop off the tip of the rocket, something that tends to happen all too often. Anyway, I found a small group of glass-mounted slides that are in pretty awful condition - faded, splotchy, dusty and possessed by demons. DEMONS!!!


What I'm trying to say is that this one took some work to bring back, but I think it was worth it. Believe me, I could have easily spent another half hour on it, if not more. There are one or two others that have so many mysterious orange spots that I am contemplating giving up.

Maj, this really is a delightful "window" to that moment and a fine shot of the rocket. That dad there un-thrilled at the camera, gosh my gramps dressed just like that to the end. Almost looks like him too. Gosh.

Please don't think you have to fix every flaw. There's going to be aging and flaws you can't really fix, we all appreciate that I'm sure. You do a super job getting it clear and nicely adjusted as possible, and that's more than enough. The content of the pic is what matters. :)

and as for lazy, I got up later'n you, nya nya! :p

I agree with Chiana! Don't worry... be hapsky! (I saw that on a Gorbachev poster in a shop on Hollywood Blvd back in the 80's) ANYWAY...don't worry about the flaws if you don't really feel like correcting them. I think we can handle a few blemishes.
