I'm in Love

So there is no question that I love all things old and vintage. My house is over 100 years old and the idea of ever moving to a brand new, just built home does nothing for me. But a big favorite of mine is old photos. I have an ancient album full of photos of strangers and I find it so beautiful and magical. So you can imagine how many times my heart has skipped when I found this amazing site that can turn any photo to look as if its 100 years old. I think its Japanese.
This is Summer, taken on the 1st day of school out on my porch. I think its very ghostly. I adore it.





And another self portrait in my kitchen. I was inspired to do some head shots by a new challenge blog I stumbled across(I seem to do a lot of that) http://www.work-your-soul.blogspot.com/ Of course they didn't turn out how I wanted but I am happy with a few.

I would love to see what anyone else does with the photo aging application. The site is http://labs.wanokoto.jp/olds I am over the moon for it. I know its not for everyone, but the right photo...and wow.

EDITED: I forgot to add that Snapfish has their 50 prints for 50 cents going on right now, the code is FALLPENNY08 and ends the 14th. What a deal!

I also love the look of old photo's they tell a much more deeper story. I will have to check the site out!

I LOVE the pictures. Old pictures are so cool...as long as I know the people. I feel like I am "missing" part of the story on people I don't know. Can't have that!!!
I want to see more pictures of you. I noticed the new picture in my blog stalker section and would love to see some more. You are very talented!!!

Thanks for the heads up on the pictures...more money for Chicago
