day 4, more photos to clean

photo cleaning seems a never ending job. actually, for the people who have been working on this project for months, huge huge progress has been made. and I am very impressed with their dedication, day after day washing photos, the same over and over. while there are highlights (cute baby pictures, weddings, etc., or reuniting photos with their owners) there are also continuous disappointments, when no matter how hard you try, a photo can’t be saved, or you go to wash it and the image just floats off the paper into the water in front of your eyes. it’s disheartening. but there are so many photos to try to save, so there’s nothing to do but try to move on to the next one.
