  • Macro-photos of damage etc.,

    For those interested in a close up look at the cracks, gouges and dirt , which old photos are subject to, check out the attached photo.

I am refering to a peculiar trend I have been noticing which entails taking a perfectly good photo and purposely giving it an aged and mildly abused look--exactly the opposite of what we usually do. Has anyone else out there encountered a demand for "instantly...
