  • My great-great-grandfather, Johannes Isaksen Hætta, in 1883.

Photo: Sophus Tromholt.

This is a photo that I have struggled to colourize. The original photo had its damages, so I did not use it in my book, all though I wish I should have. I now  have worked on it, and it is a little too dark  around his hair. But his face comes out quite ok. It seems like he was sweaty when the photo was taken, his hair stuck to his forehead, and red in the face, like he's been running.

The photo is taken in Kautokeino, during court week in april '83. As far as I know, he lived in the neighbouring village of Máze - homeplace of my father, actually - and was partly postman and taxi driver. His transportation vehicle was a reindeer, and a small sledge. He brought post from Alta to Kautokeino, and transported in addition people - in sami language called a "vappus" , - which is a a taxi driver in modern terms ! 
I have many features in common with my old forefather, I think - look at the third photo in this set!

  • An 18 year old German Army soldier has his photograph taken after surrendering to the Canadian Army during the Battle of Normandy on 8 August, 1944. This soldier which was most likely from the 89th Infantry Division was one of many Germans captured by II Canadian Corps from First Canadian Army during the advance of Operation Totalize. The Canadians attacked the retreating German units of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend, 101st SS Heavy Panzer Battalion, and elements of the 89th Infantry Division. They shockingly launched the assault at night, which was rare for the Western Allies, with Kangaroo Armoured personnel carriers leading the way. The offensive made steady gains over the night of August 7 through August 10 and by the end the amroured units captured the high ground at Hill 195 north of Falaise where they had to be relieved by infantry divisions, ending the offensive. The position secured by the Canadians was part of the prelude to the closing of the massive Falaise pocket several days later which resulted in the capture of 50,000 German soldiers.

  • Colorization of Hoyle Residence, Grand and Lafayette Ave, Southeast Corner (Now I-44). 1900. Bill Swekosky Collection. Missouri History Museum Photographs and Prints Collection.

I might revisit this later and do additional work on the exterior. It's obvious even on my night off that I couldn't stay away from this for more than a few hours...

  • Madurai Sree Meenakshi

In honour of the Madura Chithirai Festival now under way in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, here are two postcards of the ancient temple.  The annual festival in the Tamil month of Chithirai re-enacts the marriage of the goddess Meenakshi to Sundareshwara. 
These two postcards were published by the prolific Calcutta postcard company, D. Marco Polo & Co.  It was printed in Germany and painted with water colours afterwards. It was unusual for postcard companies outside of South India to publish cards from the region for sale in other parts of the country. 
The "flagstaff" is a 30ft pillar of 22 carat gold located near the temples inner sanctum.  And the second image is the outer courtyard within the temple walls.

Muslim, Hindu and Sikh pilots of No 2 Squadron Royal Indian Airforce. 
Date and location unknown. 
Seems like a good time to remind us all that these hero’s wore the same uniform and fought the same enemy we did.

  • Albert Einstein (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Albert_Einstein_Head.jpg), who died on this day, April 18, 1955,  was a physicist who developed the theory of relativity. He is best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics, a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.

By 1908, he was appointed lecturer at the University of Bern. He was appointed associate professor in 1909. Einstein became an American citizen in 1940.

I removed dust and scratches, brightened his eyes a tad and colorized the image. #before #after #fabphotocom #adobe #adobe #adobephotoshop #retouch #colorized #portrait #AlbertEinstein #KelbyOne #kelbyonepics
