My grandpa's pictures

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

I think that blue fringes appeared in the high contrast zones when I copied the slides
These were toned by my grandpa and all I did was retouching them and play a bit with contrast

I ended up making a book with the pictures adding some text and the names of people and places I was able to recognize
My cousins and uncles seem to be enjoying it :)

Months have passed, but the fun doesn't end.
Since these were stereo pictures 45x107 format, and I have both sides of most of them I have been stichting a few to get the "full picture" wink wink

In this one I stitched the person in the far right, as it was damaged in the 1st pic I posted

The monument is the column with the eagle; the column is long gone, and the eagle stands now on a small mound
