another 1,000 words

a picture is worth a 1,000 words

Toronto. There is an old saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words“. If that is true, any photographer worth his salt would have prints with volumes to say! And as old photos quietly fade, they constantly “shed words”.

In our January 2017 meeting, member  Lincoln Ross, showed us how we could restore those lost words in a session we had on repair and restoration.

Years ago, Pete Seeger sang a song reminiscent of fading images called “Who Killed Norma Jean” which said in part:

Who will soon forget”?
“I, said the page, beginning to fade”,
“I will be the first to forget…”
