Dave,

Here is a quick cleanup of the photo you posted. The main limit with it is the level of JPG compression that left it full of JPG artifacts. I have fixed what I could but to get a much better result a higher resolution scan would help and no JPG compression.

Looks OK Guga, probably needs the saturation dropped a bit but that is from the old film in Dave's photo which tended to over saturate colours.

Hutch & Guga,

Don't make him too handsome, he could fall into a depression when he confronts the result with what he sees in the mirror :greensml:

Its not a problem, I use some of my mum's box Brownie photos as a source for logos in some places. I have some good ones from 18 months, 5 year old and 10 year old, just before I turned into a pushy little sh*t.  :P

> It was encoded under lots of beer !!!

Nah, better on rocket fuel (vodka).  :biggrin:

Don't like vodka, whisky is much better

Now watching The World's End - guys gonna drink 12 pints of beer . I bet I'll beat them in the nearest 2 weeks !

So, who defaced those rocks. ?? :-)

Take care,

it's the Painted Desert in northeastern Arizona
when i was a kid, we lived in Michigan, but came out here each summer to visit grandmother

as i recall, the petroglyphs are ~1000 years old
there is also a lot of petrified wood in the same area - much, much older (millions of years)

these petroglyphs and petrified wood sites are now protected
i don't think you can stand on them anymore
and i know you are not allowed to remove any of either

back then, we were allowed to take petrified wood, and we have a small sample

yes - that's me in the middle
my little brother on the left and my youngest sister (3 years older than me)
i also have 3 older brothers and sisters, not in the photo

Dave, according to downloading numbers, it seems that your people are rather interested in your pic.

Nice to meet you all.

Here is my kid and I (this summer) White hairs start to gain place...

avcaballero,

White hair is not a problem, you just call it the signs of seniority.  :P

I'm afraid that in a few years I'll be plenty of seniority  :biggrin:
