one of my favorite parts of flea markets is going through the boxes of random vintage photographs. i can spend hours sifting through all sorts of weird pictures, finding cool images to put on my wall, or just to have so I can use them for art projects later.
i’ve collected a ton of photos so far and have a pretty random assortment of landscapes, people, just interesting things in general. I find it so fascinating to look at other people’s discarded old photographs and having no idea where or when they were taken.
sometimes you even get lucky and there is writing on the back, giving a little clue about the origin of photo. i started collecting ones of little kids on horses and i have no idea why… probably because i remember having to take pictures on a pony in pre-school too… the middle photo was purchased in madrid, spain when i was studying abroad and the back reads “recuerdo de miguelito 5/11/1945.”
