Photo Challenge


Thanks to Ollie for suggesting this week’s Challenge.

Take a photo that looks like it was taken years ago. I’ve tried this before and it was quite fun, but I did end up using quite a bit of post-processing.

According to our usual rules, you are allowed to edit your pictures after shooting, and this week is no exception! There will be a healthy dose of bonus points to anyone who shoots their entry on film 😀

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 7th May. Have fun with this one!

Challenge Admin, I enjoy taking photos mostly of landscapes and architecture - but I will try anything! I mostly shoot film and I spend a lot of time in my darkroom trying to get the perfect print. I'm a sysadmin for a living and I also enjoy cycling and music technology.


  1. Ooh – I’d forgotten that one. How exciting! Hint – Google ‘old photos’ for style tips (and get lost in the ones you find!).

  2. enjoyed putting this together, delving through the loft and reliving my youth.

  3. jonathan, sorry about this I have since deleted the image I orginally posted and placed it another version of the same image. Can you please use this link. Thank you. Maybe you can delete my first post.
