Nostalgia: a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one's life, to one's home or homeland, or to one's family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time.
What better place to take a nostalgic picture than an antique shop. One day I noticed these old women's boots on display in the window of Spanky Antiques & Collectibles, in Hastings, NE. I decided to go in and began looking for items to include for this photo challenge.
I was given permission to photograph anything in the store as long as I replaced the items where I found them. I liked the boots, found the Pepsi tray and what must have been Teddy Roosevelt's first stuffed bear.
I carefully posed them on an antique love sofa and made this picture. I prefer the sepia version but also include the color one.
Challenge: Find an antique shop, ask permission, and make a picture of something nostalgic.
