I’ve been playing around with the buttons on my iPhoto editing programme (Note intentional ye olde spelling of ‘programme’).
It’s all too easy and all too tempting. With the click of a mouse, I can take my images back a hundred years. I’m rather pleased with the results.
Amsterdam’s Jordaan area is a perfect place to start faking things. It’s already been ageing for several centuries.
Nostalgia aint what it used to be.
‘Lekkeresluis’ – ‘the comfortable lock’.
Blaffende Vis – the ‘barking fish’ cafe. Park a bike outside it and it will look ancient.
Amsterdam’s most beautiful corner – the Brouwersgracht and the Prinsengracht.
New hats, old business.
A final trick; blurring the corners of the frame to give the ancient postcard effect.
