P&S competition #94- Memories

Being a "baby boomer", I'm amazed how much has changed over the years. I marvel at all the new things, but still have fond memories of the "old days". This month, find something from your past that still makes you smile - an old car, a movie theater you once went to, anybody remember phone booths ?

I'm looking forward to your submissions and stirring up some memories !

Here's one just to get things started - way before email and texting we used one of these.

Congratulations on the September win, and I like the October subject! Are the rules the same as last month?

I'll start with these and keep an eye open for further possibilities in the coming days.
As always, with Panasonic FX500


A thermostat, far from "smart" 1/60 at f/2.8, ISO 100 26mm equivalent

I replaced this one - see further, Post #10.

A Renault R4, The no-nonsense workhorse, built between 1961 and 1992
Named "four wings" - quatres ailes in French

1/50 at f/4.3 ISO 100 49 mm equivallent

When people used to stare at their radio's and the "air ways" were mysterious, often far away, and... ghostly.

I kept thinking about a suitable subject for this thread.
This morning, as I was setting winter time on the digital cameras, I was thinking that all that wasn't needed 'in the old days'

Yes, it would seem I am getting old


So, I tried to get a picture from two of these cameras I have still around, for sentimental value.
"Product photography" is not my usual subject. In fact, I almost never do this.
It shows

Both are taken with Panasonic FX500

My first slr camera - SP500




Next one is even older: it was the first camera I got, inherited from my older sister.

Cool product shots Bart! I am a little biased towards one of the brands. Lol.
thanks

Pentax Q, #01 8.5mm normal lens. Desaturated the color in processing, to give an old time faded look.
thanks

Thanks, barondla.

A great entry of that fuel pump, with the faded colour look!

And the winner is ....

I imagine my final duty for this months P&S competition "Memories" is to award the winner. Thanks to all who participated and submitted images. I enjoyed all the entries and had a difficult time picking one that stood out from the others. For some reason, I kept going back to one image that attracted my attention. That photo was Bart's Renault R4 with the narrow street. It reminded me of someone thinking about home from the past.

So, "Congratulations" to Bart for winning this months contest. I pass the baton to him and look forward to Novembers competition.
