Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Anywhere but here?
« on: Wednesday 07 March 07 22:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, would any kind clever person 'cut' this couple out and stick them anywhere other than the current brick wall please?
They are my friends on their wedding day, they love the photo but not the back ground.
Could they be put infront of a church? garden? sydney opera house? Perhaps.
