Old Photos from Long Ago

I love to scan old photos. I love to study them. Some of these are my ancestors, most of them are unlabeled and were in with family stuff from my grandfather and from my g-grandmother. I love the captions, the poses, the foxing, the paper. Mmm.

Do you recognize yourself from the back side? I found another pic somewhere that had written across it 'do I look natural?'

Portland: City of Awesome Graphic Design

Another thing I noticed about Portland was all the cool signage. Like, is there a higher concentration of graphic designers and artists there? Cus people seem to take color and fonts and things very seriously there! I also noticed this about house colors, but I didn’t want to take a ton of pics of private residences!

Portland- City of Fire Escapes

Tags

, , ,

I know that Portland is the City of Roses (I’ll get to that later), but when I was there I couldn’t help but notice (and photograph) some of the many fire escapes. I’m not sure why these pop out at me. Perhaps fire escapes will be added to my list of idiosyncratic photography subjects (along with tree textures and dentil molding on old buildings).
