Photography: back to yesteryear.

I spent my morning wandering about the flea market. One of my favourite things to do on a Saturday...

Fortunately I came across some lovely treasures. But I'm usually not in a buying-mode. I also love to just look... 

I found a couple of wonderful old holiday albums with beautiful photographs ( dated back to 1940’s till about 1960’s). I stood there for at least 30 minutes skimming through the pages and diving into the visual stories that had carefully been pasted into these wonderful albums. Even some delicately preserved swiss alpine flowers had been pasted amongst the prints. Simply gorgeous. 

I wish I knew with what these snaps were taken... I just can't get enough of analog photography. The soft colors and interesting contrasts, the unpredictability... 

I didn't buy any of the albums as they were a bit to pricey (my bargaining was unsuccessful!) but I'm glad I was able to have a good long look!

That is exactly the problem with analog photography. People say they like it, but not enough to pay the price ;-)

Seriously, more than the colors and other things that you mention, people back then took time to take the images. That pays back, also with digital. But, once more, this is another thing that most people are not willing to invest.

Nice images on that album

Thanks for your thoughts!
Unfortunately my being a student won't allow me to buy everything I would like... That will change I hope!

You're very right about the time aspect. It's become a fast moving world, as we all know. But fortunately there are still many people out there who still appreciate the art of slowing down and capturing those fleeting moments that otherwise pass us by...
