Give A Little

In Color

I said, Grandpa what’s this picture here
It’s all black and white and ain’t real clear
Is that you there, he said, yeah I was eleven
Times were tough back in thirty-five
That’s me and Uncle Joe just tryin’ to survive
A cotton farm in the Great Depression

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should have seen it in color

This one here was taken overseas
In the middle of hell in nineteen forty-three
In the winter time you can almost see my breath
That was my tail gunner ole’ Johnny McGee
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans
And he had my back right through the day we left

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should have seen it in color

A picture’s worth a thousand words
But you can’t see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should have seen it in color

This one is my favorite one
It’s me and grandma in the summer sun
All dressed up the day we said our vows
You can’t tell it here but it was hot that June
That rose was red and her eyes were blue
And just look at that smile I was so proud

That’s the story of my life
Right there in black and white

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should have seen it in color

A picture’s worth a thousand words
But you can’t see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should have seen it in color

You should have seen it in color

What happens to photos when not treated with care?

Acids
Untreated wood and paper products that release harmful vapors that cause photos to turn yellow or brown and become brittle while prematurely aging your photos and memorabilia.

Chemicals
Chemical Fumes from household cleaning products are not only dangerous to humans but also dangerous to your photos.

Dust
The smallest particle can be everywhere and can get into the tiniest corner and destroy the family memories.

Fingerprints
A single smudge from a fingerprint contains the small amounts of acid, oil and salts, which can destabilize color dyes and generate fading.

Improper Humidity
Dryness causes photos to crack, curl and fade; dampness/wetness causes photos to stick together and encourages mold growth which result in throwing away the memory.

Insects & Rodents
Bugs are attracted to anything that they are not supposed to be. Imagine opening a photo box or photo album to show your family and friends and a bug falls out of it.

Light
Ultraviolet, fluorescent light and sunlight will fade inks and make your photos brittle, dry and aged to a state that they can no longer be shared and enjoyed.

Natural Disasters
Storing copies, negatives or digital photos off site and in accessible emergency locations is key to keeping your memories alive after a disaster hits.

Temperature
Storing your photos in areas that fluctuate from hot to cold and from cold to hot such as garages, sheds, attics and basements is a breeding ground for damaged memories.

Vinyl
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) plastics fade and stick to photo creating even more damage to the photo instead of protecting them

Water
Photos need to be no where near water that is accessible because the water will destroy the photos within minutes.
