This is a photo that my cousin Marcel van der Wal sent me the other day. It's my maternal grandmother, Maria Corver-van Maurik. Really terrible condition, with one corner missing. Posted by Hello

and this is my painstaking effort to fix it. Not wonderful, really, but the best I could do.  Posted by Hello

Ok. We got a new snoot (hair light) and needed to test it out. Between Ricardo and I, there's just one head of hair, and it's mine. So much as I detest getting my photo taken here it is, compassionately retouched to stop me from running screaming out the door. ;-) Posted by Hello

Prettig kerstfeest en een gelukkig nieuwjaar!

This pic is for my mom and all my relations sitting in Holland right now, in the pouring rain, celebrating my Tante Rie's birthday. Happy Birthday Olaf too! And Merry Christmas to everyone we love from everyone here in Canada. Posted by Hello

Even though this shot goes against about a dozen of my caveats such as NO LOGOS etc it manages to please me, mainly I think because their faces are so strong and interesting. You could take any of them, put them in an old master painting and they'd fit right in. Considering doing just that, as a matter of fact. Watch this space. ;-) Posted by Hello

Got an email last week from Charlene Chartrand. I always love Charlene's emails, she has the most exciting stuff to report. She's got the lead role in a movie filming now. She plays a character called the "Wolf Knight". Can't wait to see it. Great stuff Charlene. Posted by Hello
