You give us those nice bright colors, you give us the greens of summers / Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah! / I got a Nikon camera , I love to take a photograph / So Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away

makes me smile EVERY time. i thought of that song immediately when looking through aroid’s kodachrome photos, not just because they are actually kodachrome – but certainly the feeling they evoke. i really am such a sucker for old family photographs, and these babies are a serious treat. if you have some time to spare (MAKE some time, dammit) – have a gander through his incredible collection of vintage photographs (which i have blogged about before over here)

he even has home movies for heaven’s sake.

all belong to aroid.

    gorgeous! this is how I wish my family photos looked, as opposed to me looking slightly bothered in each photo.

    and yes, I’ll make time to look at that collection!

    These are amazing. Thanks for sharing Diana. I’m not sure if you’ve seen these, but I stumbled across some color photos from Shackleton’s trip to Antarctica. I think you’d enjoy them:
