I was looking through my record collection (that is to say, the vinyl that I still own, which is to say the shite cos I left these in the barn… the good stuff, I gave away because I re-purchased it in digital… duh) and found some old badges from when I used to set up sound systems and loaded cameras (back when a Photographer needed another pair of hands to crank the film roll into the case of a second camera, so he wouldn’t miss a shot).
I also found a library card from the next year. My hair was again dyed black yet I’d ‘rolled’ it around my temples, finishing in a bun in back. They were using the State of The Art Digital Imaging of the day. Looks like crap. I always said ‘Boy, can you see the immigrant in that photo!’
For ‘fun,’ I ran it through the ‘antique’ filter on Photo FX Studio.
That’s not 1893 but 1993! Not wearing makeup was also a mistake.
Bear in mind, all of these photos were snapped using my phone pointing at OLD badges covered in laminated plastic. Sorry for the blur and all but they don’t look very good in person, either. And I’m not talking about the subject.
