Thanks. The world looked much more interesting and photogenic back then, now every city and people in them looks almost identical to each other.

I wonder how the prints smelled (french fries?) :)

Perhaps like french fries, but they were gluten-free!

rick_reno, those allowed an interesting peep into the past. Thanks for posting.

I often wonder about whether this is really true. I think things look more interesting because they are less familiar. We're too accustomed to the world around us that we are desensitized to its beauty. I look back and see that the 70s and 80s made for interesting photographs, perhaps because the fashion and technology trends of those times are so identifiable. Perhaps people will look back at the 90s and 2000s and see some quirky art that some of us don't quite grasp. Or maybe it's because digital photography has numbed us all - photos are too sharp, too clear, too "perfect". The nostalgia and difficulty of capturing an image might not exist today as it did before. For these same reasons, photographers look for far-secluded regions of the world to find humanity in their photographs.

Oh yeah... thanks OP for the link. I really enjoyed looking through those photos! Will have to read the article later.  :p


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.
