Today’s photo I did for myself. So, today I’m not only a photo colorizer – I’m a customer, too!

I came across this 1975 publicity photo of TV News Anchor, Patrick Emory, who in 1975 happened to be my next door neighbor in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles.

If memory serves me right, Pat was the news anchor on KNBC-TV. He was a very nice guy, quite the athlete, and movie star handsome.

Pat was a popular CNN news anchor beginning in 1981, the first year of the cable network.

This guy had been my LA neighbor? I should've called him for a job. Nah, I could never have handled "Hot-Lanta's humidity. Thirty-five years later, I became a Network News & Commentary Producer with the Salem Radio Network, based here in Southern California.

In the ‘70s, aside from his work in Los Angeles, Pat spent time on St. Louis TV – and in 1981, began a 10-year stint on the fledgling CNN network. His photo is an excellent representation of how realistic an Amazing Colorizing image can look. Give us a try. We think you’ll be very pleased. ~ David Chrenko, Photo Color Artist, Amazing Colorizing
