by some busy silhouettes born and died many times,

passed the phantom of an old bike,

from the south to the north,

heading into 'Punta'along the port...

Kalimera, my friend! You're early : )

Your guess is right I took this photo (the first one!!) with the K10D @ 34mm, TV:1/50, Av:f/8, Iso:160. The exif disappeared while resizing to fit the file size limitation, as usual..Ah,I wishI could reach the exifof the second picture :-)

Well one place you could get a little closer in spirit is the little Fox Talbot Museum of Photographyat Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire, England, Fox Talbot's family home, and scene of his earliest experiments.

Alex and I both visited it recently, you may remember.That's where it all started. I felt my visit was just in time, as his negative-positive chemistry breakthrough dies before our very eyes. I feel privileged as a member of the last generation, perhaps, to have groped in the dark or the dim red lights breathing the fumes in attics & broom cupboards.

(Though its successor digital to chemical printing processeswill live for a long time yet, in the machines that printour best images to hang onour walls.)

I'm not sure if Talbot had ever visited my city, as Ihaven't seenany of his work on Smyrna...However thephotos I saw from some of his contemporaries or followers who visited here in the second half of the nineteenth century simply cast spell on me...hard to describe though...almost feelkind of worn outafterwards due to a pleasing looong session of melancholy!

Yes the third photo has a more of a holiday or day of in the week

feel too it. It is strange looking at old photo's there always seems

to be a sense of urgency going through most of them, hard times

and greedy employers whipping everyone on and making everyone

pick up the pace to satisfy their needs, very noticable as well in old

movie film footage of past times...............musket.

Happy to read your impressions again musket : )
You might rememberthe scene from 1992'saward winning Drakula by Francis Ford Coppolla,shotas 'oldB&Wfootage'but turning intosmoothand colourful when Drakula sees Madam Mina in busy streets of London!!In factIoften have a similar experince when I look intoold photographs'long enough' : )As a quick answer, I'd say, the lower frame rates of old B&W films bringing a sense of urgency to characters'movementsvery probably might haveeffected our perceptions anything regarding those times:-)However, it might also due to your keen observation skillextracting the underlyingvalues of the industrial revolution
