It's hard to describe that nostalgic feeling you get when you see something from your past. Time has a way of softening perception. We forget what we hated about whatever it was - in this case, the lousy fuel economy, non-existent safety features and abysmal reliability - and instead revel in the relatively simple joy of tooling slowly down a small-ish-town street with the top down. While words may fail us, that feeling deep down in our soul makes it clear: it's nice to look back every once in a while.
For the next week, I hope we'll share some retro pictures that evoke a similarly soft-focus view of the past. If it's from the past and it makes you feel good, we want to see it.
Your turn: Post a retro-themed picture on your blog, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the photographic joy, and feel free to submit as many times as you wish - serial participation is highly encouraged. It's all about sharing and learning. We call it Thematic Photographic, and there's more background on it here.
