I love old photos, especially ones of my family x I love the old clothing styles and seeing how people lived. They give a brilliant insight and make me thankful for what I am lucky enough to have. I also like taking snap shots of people close to me and sharing them with friends & family. Do you enjoy looking at photo's of the past or do you like taking pictures?? If so what of? I have posted a few old black & white pictures on my profile x Thanks MrsL x

well, i enjoy looking at old photos with my parents and my brother. I have some too, but not so much, because immediatly camed other cameras. But i must say, that even now, i think that pictures in black and white, are artistic. There are so nice... sure that in colours you can see more, and better, but in black and white ictures you can see all that different. When i`m taking photos, i`m taking pic of nature, funny people, funny moments, and all that i see behind that object.

i love looking at old photographs because it makes me remember a lot of things. one look at a happy picture makes me remember almost everything that actually happened that time. it's amazing how a picture does it. it's like a thing that gives us a very little detail about an event but when you get to see it you immediately remember the whole thing. lol.

I love looking at old photographs and taking pictures myself. With black and white photographs, I can think about how the those people or places or objects would have looked like in color. I love being creative with colors and with colored photographs, I can not be creative. Black and white photographs give out a sense of uniqueness that you can not really sense out of colored photographs.

Photos are the treaure of our life, our memories on a picture. I love seeing old photos, especially when my child was a new born, when I was a new born baby, when my gramdma was alive. And many other photos which sometimes they make you feel sad or happy.

I like to take pictures for my daughter. I have many many digit pictures in my computer. These pictures record my daughter's life trace from birth to now. When I am looking at those pictures there are diffrent scenario appearing in my mind. When we travel to enjoy our holiday we alway take the digit camera to catch the beautiful land scape. The old pictures are my spiritual wealth. They records our history and some history had been forgot. So We should keep them carefully.

We all enjoy seeing our past memories. If the past was good then we enjoy it a lot and when the time was bad we get more strength as in how we overcame a tough time. So it is always good to watch the old photographs of yours. They are like the golden moments that we always cherish!!

Hi friends... I too love old photos. I like their dressing. Sometimes i try to get those kind of dresses in our local market. But i couldnt find out them. N like to take photos also. Mostly I take photos of nature, then come to my friends. I like to experiment on them. They call me camboy. Though I dont have a camera, whenever i get someones cam i used to take pictures with different angles n frames. sometimes i use the mobile phone for taking pictures. n i edit them in photoshop. i like it very much.

I like looking at old photos. I can spend hours on eBay looking at old tin types and post cards. I took a look at the photos in your profile. I'm assuming their from your family? They look like nice people. Thanks for sharing.
