the female commoners' kimonos are so pretty. the male ones are ugly.

i wonder what the male noblemen's kimonos are like... they're probably pretty too.

Well that's actual color film. These are dyed colorizations, so not the original colors of anything unless there were fieldnotes about the picture itself.

Funny how many people use modern technology to get the perfect color then use a filter to make their pics look like this, tho.

When was the last time you held a photo physically? Everything now is digital, grainy, and out of focus.

Back then, disposable cameras might lacked on white balance but they surely produced nice results. It's like sepia, sepia, sepia, Sophia galore... I mean sepia galore.

The last time about three days ago, actually. I haven't gone digital with my photos yet.

The majority of photography I've seen online have swayed between that fake BW or sepia that looks odd and WAAAAAY too much overbalanced tints.

There's something about this one that I really like.


They are all sort of eerie with an aura of something that's a cross between silence and stillness but this was a great visual treat.
