Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I was shopping in this amazing vintage store in Elgin when I came across these amazing finds. A wedding dress that actually looks presentable (I guess all the 80s inspired dresses were at Goodwill). It is amazing to me that these items have lasted through time. I especially love the tins, and would love to use them to decorate my house someday. I played with some of the preset settings in LightRoom for the top image, to give it a more antique feel. Even though the demand for these items have come and gone, they have found new life. Even though they are obviously worn, rusted or tattered, they can still be seen as beautiful.

  1. The light in each of these images works really well with the subject matter you have chosen to shoot. I really enjoy the image of the dress and how it limply hangs among the rest of the clothes.
