#FridayFoto: The Past Was Bright, The Past Was Orange


There was life before digital cameras and smartphones…

These photos were taken before 2005 and the film had to be taken to a shop to be developed and also paid for. Crazy!

A weekly photo challenge hosted by The Daily Prompt

This post was part of the weekly photo challenge hosted by http://dailypost.wordpress.com with the theme Orange.

What’s not to love about orange? It’s vibrant. It’s cheerful. It makes a statement. It’s the perfect punctuation for a punchy photo.*

This week, share a group of photos where orange is either the dominant color, or provides a bold highlight. Shoot for at least three photos, and look for different shades — bright neons, deep rusts, delicate peaches. If you’ve never published a tiled gallery with multiple images before, this is a great time to experiment!

If you’re feeling particularly sassy, try to vary your subjects as well — one person/animal, one landscape or cityscape, and one photographers’ choice — and feel free to dip into your archives to flesh out your orange collage. MichelleDaily Post.

OMG – Pft me…

  1. I can remember being able to see the photos being developed in the machine at the local Boots store, which was in the window, so everyone walking past could see the photo as they came out of the machine. There would have been a few embarrassing faces I’m pretty sure.

      1. Not forgetting that you could also send the film off for developing which could take up to a week before you had your photos. I can also remember having to buy flashbulbs for a camera which fitted to the top. Now I know how very old I must sound 🙂
