Photography 50 years ago!

by Jeff Cornish January. 02, 2011 4288 views

As we start a new year I thought I would post a tribute to the great pictures and photographers of the past.

I happened upon a picture book from 1960 and decided to take pictures of my favorites.

While we have all the conveniences of the digital world, we can't forget that we don't need all that to take great pictures.

I am just realizing that these pictures are half a century old, and I not only was alive then, but I can also remember things from that time... frightening realization of how time flies unnoticed...

Great set, Jeff. Like #2, wonder how he got that shot. Hope we don't have a repeat of #8.

These are wonderful images, Jeff - and a great view of vintage photos. It's always been about the "eye", not the equipment anyway! Thanks for the reminder!

I agree... I think the old photos have something that most digital shots lack. If I could define it better I'd take better photos! :-))

Excellent Captures....I like #5. It looks like Ghosts are chasing the guy in the boat.
