A dagerrotípia 1839-es feltalálása azonnal megváltoztatta az emberek szokásait, festett portré helyett sokan inkább az olcsóbb, jobb minőséget adó és nem utolsósorban hamarabb elkészülő fotográfiát választották. A viktoriánus Angliában azonban csavartak egyet ezen: divattá vált a frissen meghalt családtagok szerepeltetése is a képeken.

From the submitter Erica:
This is Harald Andersen, my Norwegian great-grandfather. This photo was taken in 1903 after he arrived in New Zealand.

Wow.

Bad Design Taulk Having

gilmoure:

Gah!

Just saw a Cadillac advertisement, focusing on a touch screen control system. The reason we have a lot of buttons, each in specific locations with different shapes and textures, is so you dont have to look away from the road.

Oh yeah, I’ve had a touchscreen car stereo for last 9 months. About the onyl way out of this button or touchscreen is voice control. Will be interesting to see how well this plays out.

edit: iPad turned “taulk” into “TaulkHaving”. This is very weird.

Now here’s a picture with a little story. That’s my cousin Steve on the left (who, sadly, recently died in an accident), my cousin Jeff on the right, and my dad holding them both, long before I was around. (And that’s my great-Aunt Freedie in the background.)  My cousin Jeff’s daughter (my niece) now has a tumblr (called Pineapple Cheesecake) that I follow and, assuming she catches this picture, will probably be seeing her dad on my dad’s lap for the first time, because this picture came from one of my mother’s albums from way back, and in those days, it was rare to get “double prints” of anything.

davidkendall's Mother and Father.  Apparently, they liked each other.

Haven’t seen any good vintage family photos from here in a while, so I thought I’d add a couple.  This is my dad (“my” meaning davidkendall's), many moons ago, striking a model-ish pose as he gazes nonchalantly into the distance.  (Knowing my dad, he's probably trying to figure out where to eat.)

Speaking of my late grandmother, let’s all take a moment to say “awwwwww” at this picture of her and my grandfather making out at some point in the 1940s.
