Baby me


I don't have many old photos of myself, especially baby pictures. Several months ago I scanned one of the few I do have, one unfortunately dark and in poor condition. But I have played around with it in photoshop and while I'm not completely satisfied with my attempts at restoration, I have definitely improved upon the scan. And so along comes today's theme at Inspire Me Thursday: family. It may be egotistical to use a photograph of myself for this topic, but I am jumping at the opportunity to use this photo in a project.

Photographic restoration is a technique, a skill, where I have the status of absolute rank amateur. Honestly .... I don't know what I'm doing. But I am quite happy with how this project turned out and so, for now, will leave well enough alone. If you like the old photo frame I used and want it for yourself, just visit kpauli's set of old frames on Flickr, where she has many to share. Thanks to her for that! This one is called Straw Hat and it's one I find particularly charming.

Beautiful! And a photo of yourself is perfect for "family" especially a baby picture that someone in your family was probably on the other side of that lens :)

I just love this. It's like an updated version of a Victorian locket.
