Images of the past always dredge up feelings of wonderment for me.
I see an old black and white photo and I wonder what was happening at that time. What was the subject thinking? Some are funny or uplifting while others are disturbing.
The past is a valuable tool, we just have to take the time to look, ask questions and learn from what the past has to teach us. In the gallery ahead you will see images that will change the way you view the past.
1. The first photograph upon discovery of Machu Picchu, 1912
