We recently received this picture from one of my wife’s relatives. The small child is my wife aged about 6 months, being held by her father. It’s was very low resolution scan, full of spots and other marks i.e. not a particularly good scan.

I was able to eliminate many of the marks and improve the overall exposure. I printed it on our Canon Selphy CP 1200 (see: Another Christmas Present) and it actually printed much better than it appears on screen.

It’s not a brilliant picture, but it’s one of very pictures that my wife has of herself with her father. She is the oldest child and has five brothers. My sense is that she was always very close to her father, who passed away in his 50s (way too early) in 1978.

So for all it’s faults this picture will remain a treasured memory. They both look very happy.
