Masterful Musicians &
Refusing Royalism

Nostalgia is finding value within the little moments and our larger memories. As a member of the Photomyne family, we know the past holds a special place in your heart, and we welcome you to our weekly newsletter of nostalgic photos.

Celebrity spotlight

"Modern Love"

Often regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, David Bowie is a memorable figure in the music industry who significantly impacted popular music. But did you know he gave up on a chance to be a knight? In 2003 he turned down a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II.

Family flashback

Young and beautiful

"This is a photo of my grandmother Annetta Elisa Honegger and her daughter (my mother) Anita Lembo. My grandfather Heinrich Albert Honegger took this photo in Dübendorf, Switzerland, on my grandmother's 35th birthday on July 14, 1947. I found this photo after my mother passed away last February and scanned it with Photomyne."

B&W colorization

Swim like a butterfly

Contrary to common belief, the peak speed reached in butterfly swim is faster than in freestyle. Surprising, isn't it?

The way we were

Play on

If your musician kid can't decide whether to join the school band, just let them see the amount of smiles in this photo.

A touch of Sharpy

"We have to improve life"

Dr. Dorothy I. Height was a civil rights and women's rights activist and an impressive lady in more ways than one. Something about her that always makes us smile, aside from her endless effort to make the world a better place, is her colorful hats.

Sharpy is a feature allowing you to unblur grainy or lower-quality photos – try it yourself!

He calls me Auntie

"I took this photo of my nephew Jason almost 40 years ago. He loved spending time with my father on our farm and was so happy to 'drive' his grandpa's combine."
