In case you have not heard, the US National Archives has dumped the mother load of photographic treasures on Flickr. Check out the photo stream if you have a few hours to get lost while exploring. You’ll find candids of presidents, work by Ansel Adams and more.
This is great, because these free treasures will rapidly become more available and accessible to anyone who wants to use them.
I have a feeling someone will Photoshop a pizza delivery guy in this one really soon, or perhaps some aliens if Elvis wasn’t convincing enough.
Yes, people were actually taking great pictures long before info buttons and histograms were invented. Go pick up a Minolta SR series, some 100 speed film and a 35MM lens,then have some real fun Total you’ll spend: About $150.
