"QUANTUM SHOT" #71


Happy New Year!

Vintage art, Photography, Antiques, Jewelry

Time-travel is entirely possible. We are traveling into future one second at a time. "Present" turns into "Past" so quickly, that one can even doubt the existence of "Now". Instead, the Future gets gobbled up by Past, and we are smack in the middle of it. What's more, it seems like the Past is winning, because there is less and less Future left.
So with that in mind, all the more reasons to look back through the decades and see what the temporal tide will bring...

Some retro images I've enjoyed recently:
(many are from the "Vintage Photography" LiveJournal, which is an awesome retro-lover community.) Click to enlarge most images.
