In With The Old

Blazer, Club Monaco. Jeans, Banana Republic. Sweater, J.Crew. Belt, Eddie Bauer. Purse and sunglasses, street vendors. Wellies, Hunter.
Photo by Seda U.


Back in October, I deemed this photograph unacceptable for the blog: too dark, rainy, and blurry (all due to the elements, not my obliging photographer and friend). The old camera worked decently only in bright daylight, up-close, and it was preferable that I wear bright colors, at least around my face. Now that I've been spoiled with the new camera, this photo doesn't seem so terrible anymore, strangely enough. It looks like a Polaroid or a vintage find from the late 70s or early 80s. Perception is a silly little thing, isn't it?

I agree - it looks purposefully tainted. :) Still making me wish I'd get myself to BR for some new jeans..

Retro is in! It looks like you applied a filter to the photo. In fact, if you didn't say anything, I would have assumed the graininess was on purpose! :)
