vintage photo time


Another find from Ampersand's photo bin: the print in the right margin says "May 71." Somebody's little gray poodle hopping round in the snow, and someone behind the lens thinking that was the cutest thing and oh look at the fun pup was having and we are happy.

Love these!

Long ago and far away... so many little pieces of paper framing happy moments...

Then there are the photos that were taken, but the photographer never had them developed. This man finds old cameras containing exposed film and has it developed.

Good Cats! That was a great find on the lost-camera guy. Fin, KJ, I am so glad you like the photo. It gives me a sweet, wistful feeling to give those lost memories a home.

Love the picture.
There's an exhibition here at the moment of photos collected in this way, displayed together. (I haven't been to see it yet.)

Another part of the exhibition is rows of captions from photos and postcards, with empty space beneath them for the viewer to imagine what the photos might have been.

Oh, that lost camera guy's site is wonderful. Another to add to my google Reader.
