    have old photo of grandmother , the forehead is missing, can it be redone without having a photo with the full face and if so approx. how much would it cost and how long would it take to fix it?

  2. Bonnie says:

    The pic says 2009-that can’t possibly be the date the pic was taken? It looks like it’s from the 70’s?!?!

    • Laura hughes says:

      Yeah it has to be the seventies. I have a couple pictures of my mom and dad in pictures like this where the parents are in the back.

    • Christine says:

      2009 is when it was posted on the site. It has a “70s” tag, so was likely taken in the 1970s and lay around waiting for a few decades for the advent of the internet.

  3. Did you go to the show in High Pointlast spring?

    This is taken in the mezzanine of Hotel California with the proprietors and their son… soon after this the photographer was informed…”You can check out anytime you like…but you can never leave.”

    “Ah, Mr. Anderson, I see you are as predictable in this world as you are in the other.”

    It reminds me of the ghost kid in that movie where you can only see his legs when the mom flicks the sheet over the bed. Waaayyyy creepy.

  8. Anne says:

    Albert takes his responsibility as an usher very seriously and he’s not about to let Young Sven, the ringbearer, steal the limelight.

  9. Dan says:

    The guys at the back are puppeteers

    That is just weird, totally and utterly bizzare.

    That flash bulb is awfully bright, don’t you think?

    • nobody_special says:

      That’s not the flash bulb. Don’t you see mom’s eyes? That’s definitely the old woman librarian ghost from the beginning of Ghostbusters that’s causing all that light. It would also explain why dad is standing back, why the kid is hiding, and why mom looks like, well, like she’s seen a ghost.

    Coming in a bit late here, but seeing as this picture comes from Norway, I think I get it. This is confirmation day for the young man in the new suit – he looks to be about 14 or 15, which is the usual age, and the ceremony is a big deal in Scandinavia. Little Brother is being a pain in the butt and messing up the shot, which is the little brother’s job on the big day.

    He appears to have had a growth spurt since his parents bought him that suit… but only from the knees down.

    He kind of looks like he’s being firmly escorted out of church.

  14. Miranda says:

    I guess we all know who the favorite is in this family…

  15. David says:

    So thats Woody Harrelson’s family! huh…how ’bout that.

  16. Larry N says:

    He’s exercising his right not to be seen.What’s with all the guys posing with family members like a date or something?

  17. CPolly says:

    LOLOL! Oh my God…I didn’t see the kid in the background for like 10 seconds and wondered ‘Huh? What so funny here…’ The I saw the eye…OH MY GOD! HAHAHA!

  18. Moolissa says:

    Go….. I laughed so hard I cried

  19. Linzeekp says:

    Who’s the little creeper in the back? Peeping thru by mom’s elbow

  20. Susan says:

    Jimmy, his prom date and their chaperone.

  21. BooYa says:

    I bet that guy in the background throws down a good beating on those two…
