fishy wishy

Deja Mort.

Yes, its another photo of my relatives.

I think you can sense there's a theme here for the next while right? Right? Good, knew you were a clever lot.

taken in 1887, Dorothy and Hannah Nurse.

This was taken in 1887, and its Dorothy and Hannah Nurse. I'm fuzzy on the relations, but its 5am - I'm entitled to be. I'll update when I clear it up. So you know who is who, Dorothy is the older of the two.

I've been trying to finish and post this image for about four hours now. Everytime I do I find something else I want to change. The reason for this is that I'm not totally happy with the result.

The reason for this though is probably due to the original picture quality. As you can see its very dirty and the picture isn't very high fidelity to begin with. In addition there are some fundemental flaws that age has introduced to the picture, lots of noise and some serious creases and wrinkles being the most obvious.

I can't remove the noise, so that will have to stay. However the dirt and the wrinkles could be removed, so I did my best. I'm not unhappy with it, I'm just not as happy with it as I was with the last two.

I'll probably do another one of my great-grandfather next, as I know people are interested at the resemblence.

Stuffed you probably don't know.

So you now know, part of the fuzziness over my last post has been solved.

The younger girl is Hannah Nurse, my Great-Grandmother. As for Dorothy, well.. thats where its a bit confusing.

I've no idea.

No record of her ever existing, so... something to turn up in future research I guess. Can't find her in any documents my dad has that go backt o well before this period. So, yeah.. odd.

Oh and I have a MoBlog. That is, a place to post mobile phone images and some text, and you can comment as well if you like! Its free, which is pretty cool, and powered by donations. You get more features if you donate, so us LJ'ers know that system reasonably well huh?

Anyhow, already posted two images, will post as I find things to take photos of I'm sure.

on another note... people that say they'll call and then don't piss me off. Especially when you call them and they don't answer the damn phone. Once is fair enough, but two days? Infuriating. Grr
