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. =)
I got the feeling that the whole picture is from the 50`s :) Well done :)
Fascinating scene. I love the mandolin hiding in the background.
Oh yeah, these places are full of photographs...and you've got yourself one here...
Timeless. It looks like a place where we could choose a vintage souvenir. A place for curious people.
They definitely belong in mono...Love old signs..:-)
What a terrific find in that store. Looks great in B&W.
A step back into the past .. perfect monochrome subject!
December 1949!! I was not even around then!! Lovely shot!
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!
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.
As you said on my blog, Mother Nature decorates beautiful, that's for sure !
Fun memories all collaged there!
