Love the idea. Especially the processing advice.

Hope to find something really nostalgic, but if I can't find anything in the outside world (my preferred environment for photography), I've got a house full of nostalgia.

Or I can take a selfie, smooth away all wrinkles and turn it into a thirties style portrait.

I have the perfect idea for a photograph however I'm missing the prop...I need to put my feelers out and if I can get my hands on this prop, I will have so muchnfun with it as well as photographing it and post processing it! If only I could ask on here if anyone locally has one I could borrow, but it would give the game away!

I have sent an email to a local representative I found on the owners website for this particular item. I can't believe there is an owners website however, I hope my venture proves to be fruitful. I have 2 other ideas 'up my sleeve' if this one fails. Fingers crossed i get a reply from him and can arrange a photo session with one of these items!

I'm sure we would get better entries if we could use some pictures from yesteryear - the ones that contain real memories and not invented ones  ;)

But in the mean time, I'll try and find some part of Ipswich that still bears any resemblance to the past, before the yuppies got hold of it and trashed it for all times sake.
As I travel round Ipswich, I have as yet to see a single part that has not been drastically changed since the mid 90's.

If they haven't traded old buildings for lego or timber built new stuff, the roads are full of the modern PC ultra conscious street furniture.
It is a town without character now  :'(

I don't mind change - but Ipswich seems to have a mentality that takes a great idea and then screws it up beyond hope and institutes it at great cost. :knuppel2:

1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

With 26 letters in the alphabet, you have plenty of scope.

I have taken  some back up shots and the way it's going , one of them is probably going to be my entry.

I suppose you'll soon be feeling nostalgic about plan A.
