“Vintage” photos

redwhiteandblue

This is a shot of a vintage sailor shirt in an old store in Lititz, PA. They specialize in old military garb and materiel. I like the stripes in the background–very World War II Americana.

Just for fun, I turned it into a vintage photo in sepia:

This is so easy to do with Photoscape. Just click on “Filter” and choose the “antique photo” you want. (There are seven choices, but I’m not real crazy about the big inkblots.)

Here I added a little “Bloom” and “Blur” for a softer look:

Lastly, an old Coke sign:

Kind of blah, because I shot in full sun, because I liked the sign and I might not be back there again, ever! I darkened it a bit, then added some cross processing and a little “Agfa” for this:

More of a vintage feel. I love old signs.

Tomorrow, some writing for a change.
