greco & photo booths


spinning a juliette greco record for your ears.





The top photo booth images are from the state fair today, the first being of kyle and I and the second of our friends bryant and hannah. All other photographs are from a bundle of 300 we got from an antique shop. I love when they have writings on the back, especially when it's more than just names. I was thinking of making a small book that would feature the backs of old photos with writing on them, then the front side of the images in the back of the book. Or maybe they'd be side by side, the front and back of the photographs. Would you be interested in this sort of book?

Autumn weather is here!

PS
* if anyone has photos with writing on them and would be willing to send them or a scan to me, please let me know! It would be SOO appreciated!

Cute photos, I love getting used books that people written in them, its interesting to see what they write. I think your book idea could do well, maybe sort them in categories like people's vacations or weddings.

These are all so wonderful and nostalgia-inducing... The antique photographs are my favourite; how whimsical and ethereal; from another time, another world.
Love, Athena. xxx
