I like this. Makes me think that pin-ups had a kind of innocent quality in those days.

It's a real treasure trove and I agree with Aileni's comment.

How neat. I'm curious what kind of software you used to get your black and white photo. You did a great job with it. =)

Lene said...

I got the feeling that the whole picture is from the 50`s :) Well done :)

Robin said...

Fascinating scene. I love the mandolin hiding in the background.

June said...

Oh yeah, these places are full of photographs...and you've got yourself one here...

Catherine said...

Timeless. It looks like a place where we could choose a vintage souvenir. A place for curious people.

What a terrific find in that store. Looks great in B&W.

December 1949!! I was not even around then!! Lovely shot!

Terri said...

Jientje - December 1949, I was being strongly considered! ;o)

Thank you for all your kind comments. This is my first foray into BandW (since my Brownie camera days!) - I'm curious how many of you take the original photo in BW? Or do you mostly convert it after the fact? Not sure of the protocol!

Terri said...

Kathy - I've been using PhotoScape mostly (thanks Jientje!) for simple conversion. If I want to get a little more sophisticated, I use Paint Shop Pro X2 which is like a little sister to Photoshop.
