Chris' Travels & Photos
Follow along as I journey to new places where I will no doubt see cool things, take stunning (hopefully) photos, and generally have fun with friends and family!
Today I’m posting a link, picture, and text via Tumblita to see how I might do this while in England .

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.

On Valentines Day in 1884, Teddy Roosevelt’s wife and mother died within hours of each other. This was his diary entry for that Thursday.

Upside Down? - Mountain Home, ARWas hoping the sunset would bring out some nice purples and blues in the sky, but I instead found that the pond offered a great place for reflections.

Now You See It
Nearly 40 years after the 1973 fire at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, work continues on the preservation of the fire-damaged records (affectionately known as the B-Files). This work takes place at our St. Louis Preservation office, and includes both conservation and reformatting of the documents.
At first, you may think that the written information located in the heavily burned area is unrecoverable. But with the use of Adobe Photoshop we can manipulate a digital image of the burned document to accentuate subtle differences in tones and make the burned area readable.
Our Reformatting Lab is in the planning stages of a project that will use infrared sensing cameras to photograph burned documents. It will be less labor intensive than the Photoshop process and will produce better quality images.

The Countdown has Begun

In a very short 3 months, 21 days, I’ll jet across the Atlantic for my first international trip.  I’m looking forward to what awaits and am excited to have this opportunity!  I’ll be using this Tumblr blog to post pictures and stories, so stay tuned!
