blogs i like . . . weird old photos.





i am strangely obsessed with old photos of strangers, so of course i was immediately smitten with the blog weird old photos.

courtney, the girl behind the blog, loves thrifting... she scours local antique shops, estate sales, and flea markets and she shares her best finds on the blog. thanks for the inspiration, courtney!

AH! I love this too! I was once in an antique shop and found tons of old old OLD nudy photos. I wanted to buy them so bad (but alas I was with my grandmother and she would not have approved.) But I just loved the innocence of them. Nothing like you find in today's playboy.

Gorgeous! I love old photos too. My father is both a photographer and vintage/antique fanatic (I grew up with a darkroom in my house), and has a lovely collection of old photos. When I was little I would always make up stories to go with them and imagine the lives of the people in the photos. Very inspiring!

I love old photos of strangers too, to the point where I've almost purchased other people's old family albums that end up in antique shops or wherever. I haven't actually done it yet, mostly because we have no more room in our apartment for my strange collectibles:) And also, there are so many photos online, it satisfies my curiosity...somewhat.
