Monochrome Weekly



UPDATE: On the second photo, first row, there's my dad's sisters - the first and third girl, when respectively 18 and 16 yrs old - and dad's brother - 26yrs old - I totally forgot mentioning that! Dumb me! :oP


My brother Evaldo is obssessed with old times. He knows everything about Rio de Janeiro's history, as well as Petropolis'. He sent me this photo he took from an old book, from the 1927 Summer festival that used to happen downtown here, with people coming from other states just to walk along the famous Imperial time brick streets, and to eat typical German food at colony restaurants. I loved the ladies' clothes... I can't imagine myself being at that time wearing those, but it's cute!

Ya it is different! Good work there Nydia!

Old times; I think you need to increase the exposure in the PC software, or move the white point, that would take out the 'grey' effect that the shot has at the moment. Hope you don't mind comments.

Nydia said...

John, all comments and help are welcome! :o) I'm just too dumb with softwares to try making it better, ugh! Feel free to, thugh, and let me know!

Kisses from Nydia.

I love how much you can learn of past times in early photographs. I have some family ones from when my grandmother was in her twenties in the mid 1920s that I treasure.

Lovely clothes, Nydia! I like them too!

I love old photos and history period! Talking about Alaska again- that state was huge on it's state's history!

1927 - that's a long time ago. Good to see photos like this.

Guess you don't expect that particular fashion to recycle itself any time soon. I'm sure you would look good in any one of them in any case, now, then, or some time just over the horizon.
