Earth Day

The Well House at Paris Winery

I had a hard time picking just the right photo for Earth Day.  This one is several years old but I've always loved the clouds in contrast to the green of earth.  It seems that every time I go to the Paris Winery ... the clouds are like this. 

And then of course ...
The Lake
.. there's this one also.  There's just something about blue skies, white fluffy clouds and Earth Day.

Happy Earth Day!

New Release

Black Cat On A Blue Floor

Our Cat, Murphy, continues to be the subject of many of my photographs.  He hasn't always been quite so willing  to have his photo made.   Maybe as he's gotten older, he's gotten slower.  Murphy is about 18 years old.  Let's see.  In Cat years that would be .....

Happy Easter!

In honor of the Easter Bunny  .... some of my favorite bunnies.

Anne's Rabbit
... just loves purple Homestead Verbena

Flopsy and Mopsy live in my backyard. 
Spring, when the Phlox blooms is their favorite time of year.

I found this little bunny hiding out at Homestead Gardens last year.
Apparently he really loves Petunias.

This is my very favorite.  Our granddaughter, Addie with Flopsy and Mopsy.

All of these images were snapshots taken with an inexpensive little point and
shoot camera and then enhanced a little bit by me in Photoshop.

Hope you have a Happy Easter!!

Nice Catch!

I've posted so many photos of pretty posies lately ... I just wanted to remind folks that one of the main reasons folks move here is because of the fishing.  Fishing is one of the main things that makes Paris Landing so wonderful.

This is my cousin Andy "Butch"  Bolding of Paris Landing
Nice Catch!

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny is alive and well and has been spotted in Paris Landing.

Hope you have a Happy Easter!!

Once Upon A Time ... Photo Restoration

Original Photograph

Once upon a time ...

     There was a beautiful woman who got all dressed up in a beautiful dress to go to a military ball with her Prince Charming.  A photograph was made and put away into a photo album so that sometime down the road she and her children and her grandchildren could all look at it and see the beautiful dress and know what a special night it had been.

     Unfortunately, the photograph was placed in one of those albums with the sticky pages and plastic page covers ... which eventually turn yellow and will not let go of your photographs.

The original photograph was only about 2 inches wide, pretty small.  It was sent to me to see if I could make it a little bigger.  So this is what I did.

Restored photo

I cleaned it up, dropped the old background and put in a new one more appropriate for such a regal lady.   And then ....

Color Tinting
I color tinted it. 

I love this restoration. If you need to have an old photo restored please email me for details.
