I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
I think I’m handling it quite well. I haven’t cried yet.
I’ve had people tell me that 30 isn’t that old. But, I remember a time before the internet.
I remember there being only 4 channels.
Shit, one of my first TVs, didn’t store the channels…..if you wanted to change to BBC1, you had to retune every time. It was just a dial, that 90% of it was static, and you’d feel like you were cracking a safe, where every now and again, you’d hit upon a channel.
I remember when stations closed for the night. They turned off…stopped transmitting.
I remember when email addresses were GIVEN to you….you didn’t choose it, it was a number, like a phone number. No email@example.com…you were firstname.lastname@example.org
I remember when THIS was the pinnacle of gaming technology ( I had a Spectrum +3 )
I remember getting milk at school.
I remember you had to be actually in the house to make a phone call! I remember not being able to use the house phone and the internet at the same time!
I remember when I could go into HMV without thinking “Do they have to play the music so loud?”
I REMEMBER WHEN EDDIE MURPHY WAS FUNNY!
I remember seeing Jurassic Park in the cinema, first week it opened. It was a PG13 and I was 11. I snuck the fuck in and to this day, I still jump at the same fucking bit ( raptor snorting on the glass ).
I know I’m not the oldest person on Tumblr ( That’s Doug, surely ¬_¬ ) but, I do feel old. Or maybe, just a lot has changed in the last 30 years. Maybe other generations wont feel like this, because the change wont be as noticeable.
