Photographer's Note

3 photos today , encouraged by the positive response to the restoration of tha Akdamar negative, I took an even more difficult challenge and resurrected this one from the dead. One fine morning in late 1997 I spilled a cup of hot coffee (with milk, no sugar) on a batch of negatives. I never thought the damage could be repaired. Yesterday I used pre-moistened eyeglass cleaner wipes to clean these (moistened with what smells like alcohol, definitely not water) and it worked quite well on this one. The horizontal line through the top of the campanile is not a scratch, but a sand bar that extends to an island out of view to the right (see WS for island)
Budva itself has suffered a similar devastating tragedy to my negative, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1979, but has been reconstructed, somewhat overrestored, but not in a Las Vegas/Disney way.
The first WS shows the version I really wanted to post, but there were too many white dots to smudge.
The 2nd WS shows that version after the first wipe treatment (yesterday was a holiday so I had time).
