When I was at the Shaklee family reunion this summer in Oklahoma, my beloved cousin Nancy, who was born just 25 days before I was, shared a box of old photos with us. She had some wonderful photos of our grandparents when young and I asked if I could borrow some and bring them home to scan. I did that this morning. I simply love my iPhoto application on my MacBook Pro. There were spots and imperfections in the scanned images, so I used the "Enhance" and "Retouch" options under "Edit" and fixed them right up! This is my fantastic grandfather, Vere Shaklee. He was so sweet and good, we all adored him.
Here is an example of the "Before" photos - this is my sweet grandmother Nina Pierce Shaklee.
Here is after I enhanced the color and "airbrushed" the crack out.
Here is a photo of my cousin Nancy and I (I'm on the left). Our mothers must have been great friends as they dressed us alike often and had our photos taken together. :-)
Here's a photo that I had not seen of us - I love it so much as we both look so happy. Note the matching dresses.
