My balloon

This is probably as good as it gets in life - you are four years old (five?), you get a balloon and you spend an afternoon looking at some weird old cars. There are adults all around getting excited about these old cars, you're not sure what the point is (after all, aren't new cars better than old ones?), but it doesn't matter, you have a balloon.

Anyhow, this was taken with my old Konica on black and white film at a old-timer meeting in the center of Ljubljana sometime last year. With photography, you can usually tell the time period of a photograph by small details such as cars. But with photographing old cars such as these with an old film camera, I could probably convince people that the photos were taken thirty or forty years ago.
