  1. An interesting spelling of Christena. I love your colorization. I was telling my son about your techniques just this evening. I read your blog on Shades of the Departed, but still don't understand how you do it. I guess I need a program to begin. The color makes the photos come alive.

  2. Wow! I love the colorization. I need to go back and read your Shades of the Departed blog again.

  3. I love love what you do with photos!

  4. Thank you Linda, Harit and JoLyn! I just love working on old photographs and I guess you could say I'm addicted to it. I just want to make sure that the generations to come will be able to put faces to all the names and statistical data...... Thank you again for you kind words!
