I love photos. I love Mexico. I love photos of Mexico. Most of all I love old photos of Mexico. There’s a shared romance and nostalgia that both create individually, but that works better together. I’ve come across old photos of Mexico before, from the Cornell collection. I came across a blog post (thank you Facebookers!) with a collection of snaps today. They never get boring.
I can’t take old photos of Mexico. Not until time machines become affordable, anyway. But I can fake old photos. Well, I can – and did – try. I prefer the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s look. I have a set of photos on Flickr which I have run through filters. I’ll add to this set one day. Hopefully I’ll get better with a bit of practice.
