those were the days my friend! There is something so compelling about the feel of old photos! There's a sense of time past in the colors.

Such classic shots! I love these journeys back into time!
You need to come and scan all my family images too! I keep putting it off even though I know I shouldn't.

The boardwalk and shadows and tones have an old newsreel feel about them. So enchanting and fascinating.
