Finding a black and white, grainy photo of my mother , Janet Duncan from 1957, I realised she’s 10 years old in it, the same age as my daughter currently is. I decided to sharpen the photo, then coloured it, which I think, turned out rather well.
Then, finally, using the better quality image, it was put through animation software, providing an unseen glimpse into what my mother may have looked like at that age. This may not mean much to readers of the page, but to see facial features you recognise from so many other family members, is quite spellbinding!
I’m happy to try this for anybody with a half decent forward facing photo of a Blantyre relative.
