this got me thinking back to joseph & his amazing technicolour dreamcoat by andrew lloyd weber.  my parents had the soundtrack of an early nineties production (1991?) – the one with jason donovan as joseph… and as a youngster i used to sit in the lounge and sing along to it aaaaaall day. oh man! i kind of dislike musicals now (or at least, it takes a pretty great musical to keep me interested) – probably because i sang any dream will do until it was coming out of my ears.

blue & pink

really enjoying this colour combo lately. sparked off by an amazing photo of jayne mansfield…

shorpy

shorpy is one of those sites i should have discovered years ago, but instead only found in the past month via this via that via this via some other site i forget. anyway i’m glad i did because these vintage images are quality. and when i say quality, i mean HIGH quality.

I am a 22 year old graphic design student, born and raised in the dark forests of Sweden. I take pictures to remember, to preserve a passing moment and to distinguish interesting details from their otherwise average surroundings. I love traveling and take my best pictures when I travel. I have a fondness for all things vintage, typography and morning light. I have spent most of my life thinking I cannot draw. I am not yet convinced of the contrary, but at least now I am trying.

i decided to start scanning in all our old family photographs, mostly for safety’s sake – but also to share some of the pretty radical images my parents have in their archives. you can see the complete (and growing) set here.
