Expensive, but so worth it

Those of you who know me reasonably well will know that my dad died when I was four. I don’t have a lot of memories of him, and the same goes for photos.

Mind you I have managed to collect a rather good amount of photos…

Ages ago mum gave me a whole boxful of stuff and it had some photos in it. One was very big – poster sized – and I loved it immediately. Pity that it had been folded up and damaged.

But look… I had it restored.

Introducing, Pieter; my dad.

I have another photo taken at the same time, but smaller, it also needs restoration, but don’t think I’m going to spend another $100 to do that at the moment.  Anyone need some practice?  😉

  1. That is a great shot.

    I wouldn’t mind having a go at restoring a copy of your other photo. Alas, I don’t have access to a good scanner just at the moment, but if you have a digital copy, I’m happy to have a go at it.

  2. Nice to meet you Pieter! Fabulous photo Tara. You’ve already had an offer of help with your other photo, but I’m more than happy to have a go too — if you want 😉

  3. Oh what a precious gift tara…its a fantastic photo and no doubt one that you hold very closely to your heart.
    Lovely to *meet* your dad 😉
    With love

  4. That’s a brilliant photo Tara — you must be so happy with the results.

    I am also sure that your father would be very proud of and happy with the person (wife, mother, friend, etc!) that you have become.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us all. 🙂

  5. WOW – that is an amazing photo – thank you for sharing this Tara. He looks like he was a loving free-spirit…people like that are oh-so-precious, and I’m sure he would be so proud of the person you are.
