Bikie Days

Original photo
Most recently I have been restoring a couple of biking photos taken in Auckland in the 1960s. These photos were scanned and emailed to me and featured an irregular texture that showed up in the scanning process.  After a couple of additional scans I was able to restore the faded colour, back to the original black and white as well as remove the texture. Below is the end result.

Kelburn Normal School Photos scanned

Over the last few weeks I have been scanning a large number old photos from our local school in Kelburn, Wellington dating from the early 1900s through to the pre-digital present. The school will celebrate its centenary in 2014 and over the next wee while I will be restoring those in need of attention. As you can image some of the photos need some restorative work.  I will feature some of the before and after restorations on this site
