not mine, in the sense that this is a picture of a picture...

I have a bunch of old glass slides that I picked up last year at an antiques barn in Maine - I gaffer taped this to a diffusion disk, propped up the disk in front of a lamp positioned to shine right on the glass slide - I then took LB images of the slide(with a macro attachment, I believe; but now I can't remember which one or whether, even, I stacked a couple of them).

This particular slide indicated "Warwick, England" (and is another point of view of this one ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61651/120/753472.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61651/120/753472.jpg', '/') + 1) . '), but has no date - from the look of all the slides I'd guess within 10 years either side of 1900.

What a great idea of photographing the slides with a lensbaby. I hope you show us more of these, they are wonderful!

I like these. A work of art from the turn of the centuries.

Looking at both these I am struck for the zillionth time with the fact that these pioneers were really very good at the basics. They had to be, I suppose, because basics was what they had to work with. I spent ages admiring the photographs of Eugène Atget for that reason ... the fundamentals are just so deeply satisfying and the photographs are so enduring because of it. It's the property that gives meaning to the term, "an imperishable pleasure".

Hah! At it again!! From the thumbnail, I was about to say that the shot looks like one of those old pictures from the turn of the century (20th, that is). Turns out, it is. ;) Now do like ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Ecce Signum says, and do it yourself. 8)

lol, like the others I was in awe of the shot at first and whilst its not your shot I do like what you did. Now, your task (should you choose to accept it) is to go and find a similar scene and work your own magic on it to try and replicate the above.

Dang I was about to say "This one has a real, turn-of-the-century feel to it", then I read your comments and see it IS turn-of-the-centiry LOL. Doh on me! It works, anyway. Lensbaby Copies, the Wave of the Future!

Geeeeez, you did it again. Certainly I would imagine this falling out of someone's old photo album. Oh, it IS an old image. LOL Love the editing. This is terrific.
