A Study of Vintage Proportions

May 7, 2009 by

While I am gathering supplies for my next repurposing project and scoping out photo shoot locations (does anyone know of a retro coin-laundry place around Detroit?), I have a mini-photo series to share with you, not so aptly entitled “a study of vintage proportions.”
