Re: World's oldest photographs

That's brilliant, I love old photographs, the ones of street scenes and well known buildings are particularly interesting for me, there is a very specific feeling that comes with viewing old photos which I don't have a word for.
I enjoyed looking at them, thanks for putting them up, cheers Joe.

A crushing and overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. Something I assume would come naturally to Lab fans.

Yeah it's slightly nostalgia, but nostalgia carrys a sad vibe with it where as I don't feel sadness looking at them I feel something else too, it's like a kind of happy feeling with contentment that the past will never return again, I don't know what the word is for it, but whatever it is I love looking at old photos, cheers Joe.

Similar - but different. I was looking just yesterday at this blog about the photographs with the longest exposures ever taken (as long as 3 years). There are some nice blurs and distortions and interesting patterns of light which remind me of those really early photos.

I like the visual effect more than the music, whatever that was. :P

Wow, fab shit!

It's so weird to imagine a world without photography! It's almost like a world with no memory...

Comfort, in that we can see into the past and compare it to the present and a sense of empowerment for the same reason.

Re: World's oldest photographs

You can see the determination in the faces, but not a smile, for having to sit perfectly still for a very long exposure.

Interesting link. I like how you can see the passage of time in a static photo, especially the way the stages of construction become abstract art.
