Old photographs have a certain quality about them, colours don't go pixel crazy in a horrible fluro of grey noise the same way they do in digital photographs. It might have been that before I moved to digital my photograph taking abilities were much higher. But what's more likely is = Film just turned out better.
So what if digital was much cheaper and more distribution friendly? I miss the old days of tearing open my packet of developed film in rabid excitement and sorting through my ill-lit and unfocussed crap to find a few good photographs. Those good photographs were amazing.
But really the whole process was much too expensive.
So now I opt for digging through other people's photographs. I found this set in an Antique and second hand store. These are just a few of my favourites. I'll add more when I finish scanning them in.
