So this week we’re prompted to share photos of wedding or stairs or people on stairs.

How’s that for a wedding photo! It’s such a stand out that I’m only sharing one image this week. What could come close!

I hope they lived happily ever after.

I made another short video for Sepia Saturday. I’ve used photos from my recent trip to the Charles Dawes House in Evanston. Charles Dawes was a diplomat and Coolidge’s Vice President. His house on Lake Michigan is now a museum with a collection of old gramophones and such. Their website doesn’t describe that collection so I’m not sure who donated the collection.

This week I decided to try to make a video for my Sepia Saturday post. I used a free service called Spark by Adobe. It’s quite easy to use, but I’ll make a how-to video on using Spark this coming week.

I think that ballooning is such a romantic endeavor and still is. I haven’t been in an open air balloon, but would love to try it.

Sepia Saturday Header 431 : 11 August 2018

This week we’re prompted to post photos of photographers. Quite meta, huh?

I think the old days of big, bulky cameras is quite romantic, while the small compact cameras like the one with the lady holding a hair brush (for reasons that escape me).

I have no idea why she’s holding the brush like that. The description didn’t say.

Above is a group of photos of old cameras. I remember my first instamatic. It didn’t have the full flashbulb attachment, but I do remember those too.

Trick photography. Illusions. What a fun prompt. Here’s what I found online:

2.7 A Severe Operation

Victor Bracq via Photographischer Zeitvertreib (1903), From Mental Floss

This super example of rick photography was featured in a Mental Floss article called “7 Photographic Tricks, Hoaxes, and Fads Before Photoshop.”

Even with all the digital tools available, I think I’d have a hard time making such images.

This one’s my favorite as I like the crowd assembled for the launch.

Hat’s off to hats. For Sepia Saturday I thought I’d see what hats I could find from different countries. I searched through Flickr Commons for these.
