i like the really early stuff, especially portraits. being that everyone had to sit motionless for so long in order for the film to develop properly it give the pictures a lifeless creepy vibe that i enjoy. my dad has a great book of portrait photography from the early part of last century. i need to borrow that thing.

I don't have anything post but i def agree on the awesome factor of old black and white photos. I fucking love it when places (usually pubs or restaurants) have a big black and white photo of what the outside street used to look like a bazillion years ago. I love it.



edit: Rage that thread you linked to is brilliant.

I've posted these before.

But I still like them.









Right next to me are literally a dozen old photo albums that I have been sorting through.

I brought all my granny's photos from her house last time I went up to visit.

Maybe later on today I will scan some more.

If the mood strikes.

I need to get a scanner! Blood Fart, according to my mom, those photos of kids sitting on black and white ponies were a common novelty back in the day. My mom has a picture of her on one. Somewhere Ive got a picture of my grandad at a cock fight in Puerto Rico, with other soldiers betting money. Also Ive got a pic somewhere of my grandma and her sisters in Japan posting up on an early 50's model Mazda.
