Old Photo Inspiration

From my posts, it's rather obvious that I have a love for old photographs.  Some are happy, some are heartbreaking, and some are even a bit spooky, but they're all time machines.

The interesting thing is that, one day, all our photos that we have now will be considered "old."  These moments that we've captured are fleeting and then end, and in the future they will all be memories.  Admittedly, modern times have produced somewhat of a photograph glut, so to speak.  There are so many selfies and random vines and clips stored on smartphones and posted all over the Internet, whereas in the "olden days," when the above photos were taken, people had one camera and used it sparingly.   That said, photos will always be interesting as devices for time travel!
