D28: Flashback to the Past

tasra365-rollipI absolutely love old photos, even if they’re worn and faded, even if they weren’t composed or exposed properly. There is something about seeing images from the past that makes me feel connected to something bigger than the present day glitz and gloss of modern day living.

Just a few days ago I was introduced to a new site, Rollip.com, that converts the new into old. It’s a Polaroid pic maker and you’ll love it. For today’s photo, I shot with the intention of converting it to Polaroid so I wanted something more classic and wasn’t concerned about color or lighting since I knew it would be altered. Didn’t do any processing, just uploaded to Rollip and with a click of the button I’ve got my flashback to the past.

Just for fun I ran a couple of my iPhone pics from New York through Rollip and shared those below. Love the look and feel it gives the city. Can’t wait to visit NYC again this weekend!

Manual: Page 129—Specifications. So if I wasn’t reading through the camera manual completely, I would probably never read this section in the back right before the index. But if you want to learn a lot about the specifics of your camera, this is the best place to go. All the details in a neat, tidy table just ready for the taking. Check it out!

Images: Since I was already on Rollip, I decided to join and visit their Flickr group and browse through the images.
