(I want) a black and white summer.


¿Por qué son tan bonitas las fotos en blanco y negro? Tienen un algo que las hacen tan especiales, son tan, no sé… Nostálgicas y dan una auténtica sensación de viaje en el tiempo. Y todo esto viene a que estaba yo aquí pensando en la muerte. Es broma. Estaba yo aquí comiendo (ricas) cerezas y viendo la Vogue online, cuando me he encontrado con un reportaje de fotos de personas de los años 40, 50, 60, disfrutando de su verano en la piscina, playa, etc. El caso es que mi amor por los años 50 aumenta cada día, y no solo por el bikini con parte de abajo de (super) talle alto que tanto me gusta, ni por esos tupés que no se despeinaban ni con el agua, sencillamente adoro los años 50 porque son, ummmm, son asdklalseiakdka. Son perfectos.


Why are photos in black and white as beautiful as they are? They have something that make them so special, they are so, I don’t know ... Nostalgic and they give a real sense of time travel. And I say all this because I was here, thinking about the death. Just kidding. I was here eating (delicious) cherries and reading the Vogue online, when I’ve found a story of pictures of people from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, enjoying their summer at the pool, beach, etc.. The thing is that my love for the 50’s is increasing every day, and not just for the bikini bottom with (super) high waist that I like so, and not only for those toupees full of hairspray, I simply adore the 50’s because they are, ummmm, they are asoieaskdfae. They are perfect.






Y eso por lo que adoro los años 50, porque no necesitas ser un Beatle o ser Marcelo de "La Dolce Vita" para estar feliz o disfrutar del verano. Vale, quizás, a día de hoy tampoco necesitamos ser ellos, pero, ¿podéis ver lo felices que parecen todas esas personas? Y ellos no tenían internet u otras cosas tecnológicas, realmente, lo que ellos tenían era, ya sabeís chicos/as, Rock'n Roll.

And that's what I love the 50's because you don't need to be a Beatle or to be Marcelo from "La Dolce Vita" to be happy and to enjoy summer. Ok, maybe, in our days we also don't need to be them, but, can you see how happy all those persons seem to be? And they didn't have internet or other technology things, actually, what they had it's, you know babe, Rock'n roll.

  7. I agree, black and white photos have a certain sense of nostalgia and magic.
    And i too love the 1950's, with the exception of a lack of rights for woman and all that jazz.
