Someone else's forgotten treasures...

Today was one of those days...where the need to create was to great to ignore... other then photographing cemeteries, my next go-to spot is antique stores.

For the most part, I love looking at old stuff... hence my film obsession. There is something about an old object that belonged to someone else that speaks to me... maybe its the fact that to them ... these items meant something....

Take for instance this radio and camera. I would have to say that back in the day, these were real keepers.... to have a radio was to have the world only an ear away. Or this camera for instance, although simple, it was a way to make memories....both of which I would assume were priceless to their owners, and that to me means something.

I even ran into this cute couple...haha. My only concern about them was... were beef tacos like a no-go in their household! Alright, no more silliness =)  here's the whole set from today's outing!
