Perusing Old Photographs

I love photographs from the 19th century. The sepia tint, the wild experimentation with a new technology, the unsettling feel of the photos. Even the creepiness is great.
It’s baffling that we went from huge cameras that required a long exposure time to having a camera in our pocket.
I actually wanted to be a professional photographer in high school. I even looked at several colleges that had a photography program. I was talked out of it though.
Anyway, I think the first photo is great.
