Christmas Ghosts in the Machine

Okay, I admit it. I have started to date someone.

He's lovely and very happy I am too!

Now the reason for this post is that my brother took some photographs us together on Christmas Day using 35mm film. Unfortunately, bad light and our mutual inability to keep very still conspired against us (unless my brother has started to suffer from a shaking disorder) and this has left us both resembling Christmas ghosts in the machine.

E.g. photo of me, mucking about in front of my brother.

As the photos are so blurred, I am not sure whether they are a write-off altogether or whether it might be possible to salvage them. Either using the original negatives or copying the photos to CD and playing with them digitally.

I got Boots to cut the negatives to CD for me so that I can have a play with them at home but does anyone have any thoughts on what I might do or try?

After all, it was our first Christmas together and it would be good to have a photo with us both in focus. All together now....ahhhh.

I'm so pleased for you! You look so happy in these photos, I think you should keep them. You can't keep still when you're in love, the blurry shows that.

Now that I think about it, Gabrielle is rarely still. I'll never forget the smile on her face when that photo was taken.
