#MySundayPhoto Number 41 - Old Photos

The top of Sugar Loaf, about 1990

#MySundayPhoto Number 41 - Old Photos

The theme for #Blogtober17 Day 15 is Old Photos. I thought this would be easy as I have hundreds of old photos, but which do I choose? Many are very old and obviously not digital, a few are black and white. During the 70s many were given a purple tinge that no-one liked but I guess the film processors thought was "cool".

I thought I'd choose some with me and my children, but there are so few and those that I do have are not very good quality. It is so much easier with digital cameras, we used to take just one or two pictures and not know if they were any good until weeks later when we got them back from the processors. Many would come back with stickers on them stating they were "out of focus" or "over exposed".
Now we all take hundreds, just remember to get some with the people that are important in your life.

Me and my son at Woolacombe. My daughter is taking the opportunity of me not looking to wander off in the background haha! This would be about 1992.

  2. Old photos have a certain look to them, a character you could say,. as the image fades slightly. it's not something you get with digital images. Great shots and funny to think as recently as 1992 we still used 35mm film. In fact I was taught at college how to use 35mm film! Some real nostalgia in these pisc. #MySUndayPhoto

  3. Hi Cardigan, it's funny how we can tell an era just by the look of something. Your old photos do look decades old. I remember the days when my parents would tell menot to take too many photos unless I was going to pay to have them developed! The photos I have of my two were all taken on a camera with film... Digital cameras have really changed peoples approach to taing photos.

  5. Hehe, what a tinker! I love looking back over photos. I was telling Freya we used to have to send the film away to be developed, she looked completely blank.

  7. I can lose myself looking at old pictures. Like you, I have a lot of them on paper! I actually worked as a photo developer, in Tesco, for many years. I loved that job so much! x
