Sunday scans/FSO: Rustic


This is rustic, the color has changed from a colour photo to a sepia. The Granddad has gone to heaven, and the little girl is now a beautiful girl.

A fort is really old, built by the Portuguese when they conquered Malacca in 1511 - 1641 . It is so rustic even the name has changed to Meleka. The Stadthuys (an old Dutch spelling, literally meaning "town hall"[1]), also known as the Red Square, is a historical structure situated in the heart of Malacca Town, the administrative capital of the state of Malacca, Malaysia. It was built by the Dutch occupants in 1650 as the office of the Dutch Governor and Deputy Governor. ***Correction, Thanks to Marja.***

These are real equipment used in th early Antarctica exploration, now on display in Chrischurch.

The rustic hut is similar to the old houses in the villages when I was young.

My nephew is now a dad of a kid as old as he was when he was dancing his traditional Kelabit dance of Borneo.

Time sure does move along! These are wonderful photos, and I enjoyed this retrospective.

Is that you with your grandfather? What a wonderful picture! Yes, old color pictures will fade then turn rustic or into sepia. I wonder if the ones we take now will turn the same way many years in the future, or maybe the printing technology is better now.

Marja said...

Beautiful rustic pictures. We walked past that church in Melaka in Malaysia. I remeber that it is an old Dutch church

beautiful shots!

Gattina said...

It's a pity that the pictures lost their colors but they are still very nice and such good memories !

Scriptor Senex said...

I think the loss of colour adds to their atmosphere - a reaqlly old and happy feel to them. Thank you.

I agree with Scriptor that the fading sepia color of old pictures is a great way to interpret this weeks theme. Wonderful memories and pictures. Thanks..

I agree with SS and Mark. Great memories.

Why I didn't think of sepia as rusty looking ^_^. Great idea from a great mind. Thanks for sharing!

Rust,rustic,rusty

Cheryl said...

I loved your take on this theme, Ann. Really sweet shots.

Kerry said...

I didn't think of sepia as a way of doing the theme this week, but I think it's perfect.

Look at that little dancer! I hope he's still rockin' it.

EG Wow said...

It's wonderful that you still have the old photos even though they are fading.

Heather T. said...

I like your take on the subject, very thoughtful :)

Pauline said...

Great take on the topic, Ann. Love the rusty coloured town hall.

Jama said...

That is what Malacca is famous for, it's a must visit for all visitors!

the chinese couplets pasted on the walls which used to be considered San Ba (village like) are now in fashion. Most Chinese shops in Miri have them now...And I think many homes have them during Chinese new year...

I remember my grandma once pasted a set after she bought them in Sibu from one famous calligrapher...and we thought that was a good New year for us.

DawnTreader said...

Some of my old photos are fading too. Reminds me I ought to scan a few more of them before they disappear altogether! Great thought for the theme.

Borneo Falcon said...

Wow! Thanks for sharing old photos of the Dutch Square. It has many colourful flowers back then

Doreen said...
