    Old photographs always tend to fascinate me,

    they just give you this warm vibe inside. I particularly like old photographs of places and objects, it's just awesome to see how everything has evolved over time. My favourite old photographs in particular are of the coca cola company, everything used to be so different back...

    To me, and old photo is a moment captured in

    time, then preserved to show future generations. I'm especially fond of daguerreotypes. My family has an old photo of my great-great-great paternal grandpa. I like looking at him, trying to see pieces of myself in my ancestors.

    I can sit for hours looking at old photos.

    Family photos. I find it very interesting, and I love the stories that old photos bring out to be heard.

    There is something about old photographs

    that just fires the imagination, staring at this picture from Victorian London you can almost see it come to life. I only wish someone had invented the camera much earlier.

    Hmm...Old photographs.

    ...lemme see. They are precious. 1) you come to realise how old you are. 2)they would be the same ; yesterday , today and tomorrow. 3)when u see a real old one , a sort of wave passes through ur heart. Sometimes it gives you pain at other times its a simple pleasure

    Old Photo Album

    I remember finding an old photograph album.  All the pictures inside were in black and white. Some of the photos were obviously taken in the 40's because of a soldier posing near a Nazi bunker with his Browning automatic rifle.  Other photos seemed much older and were...

    Family Bingo Years ago I dug up some family

    photos that were just in a box, being neglected. I picked out maybe two dozen, then made color copies of them, shrinking them to fit into those baseball card holders that fit in 3 ring binders. Each page holds nine photos, and voila! Family Bingo! The caller usually comes up...

    Past And Present

    Old photographs have always fascinated me, but most of all I love comparing recent photos of places I'm familiar with to pictures of the same place taken decades earlier. Even if the area has been altered extensively in the decades following the first photo, there's nearly always...

    I always love it to look at old photos

    where I can see my ancestors, my hometown and the house where I am living in, how they looked 200 years ago, etc. etc. Sometimes I really enjoy it to do small trips in the past by looking at those old photos. :-)

    I try to collect photos, documents, and anything that brings to life how people lived day to day in the late 1800s.  It was a fascinating time - when people had no idea just how dramatically things would change over the next several decades, and the country was still just 10...

    Treasures

    My parents have collected many photographs. Since I was a kid I always loved to go through them all and kept asking who was who and when was the particular photo taken. They treasure them and maybe it's the reason why I love taking photos myself.
