I suppose I am just in that kinda weird mood today. And getting inspired by everything around me. I am listening to Hildegard von Bingen
on Pandora and looking for Victorian dresses(as part of the mini book) on the web and feeling nostalgic for some reason. I've just put in a bid on ebay for a beautiful daguerreotype of a young girl. It is set in a its original case and is beautiful. Let's hope I get it.
While looking all of these old photos on Ebay I began revisiting my own tiny collection. It was pretty interesting to scan these in. I like the strangeness and beauty in all of them. They aren't perfect examples, that is why I chose these particular people. A lot of the details had been lost because of age. Now I can see even more bits and pieces. And so can you. Here is my mini collection:
|I love this photo because the girl is a bit strange looking.|
|I love these little kids with attitudes.|
|Ok, not a tintype but a beautiful old photograph anyway...|
|Love the pint cheeks and plaid|
|This one is super dark and tiny, found at the flea market outside Paris.|
What kind of old things do you collect?
P.S. If you are into Hildegard there is a new film out about her. Here is the preview
. It looks amazing and it opens today!
Update: I won the item on ebay...I'll post it when I get it!
