I’ve unfortunately spent the day in hospital being tuned into a human pin cushion and drained of my life juices by NHS vampires (I’ll be okay, just need rest) which means I haven’t been able to post earlier for Wednesday Lensday.
But as I’ve gained many more followers now (I actually reached my 200th WordPress follower today – welcome Stephalleneous! And super thanks to everyone on board!) I thought I’d reblog my first photography post that peeps may not have seen. I may do this ‘respin’ lark a bit whilst I rest up – I hope you don’t mind. I’m sure you won’t because you’re all lovely. 🙂 See you on the flip side…
As an art form, I love photography. Along with preserving precious memories for generations, I also enjoy NOT knowing much about an image, preferring instead to make up my own stories about the subjects as if I’m stepping into a picture book – When was that taken? Why is that there? Who were they with?
I recently saw the 102 year-old images that were circling the internet, depicting a young girl on a Dorset beach, IN COLOUR! It was completely mind-blowing to me, not only that the technology existed (autochroming) but just how timeless the photos were. The images could easily be from a magazine shoot today, with the only suggestion of era coming from her swimsuit. If you’ve not seen them, they’re currently on display at the National Media Museum in Bradford, UK. Or have a look at how stunning they are here.
