As We Were: Lola

Meet Lola. Yes, that is her name.

What attracts you to an image? A face. A dress. The details of a collar. The pose? Or is it the attitude? A photograph can take you on a journey into the past, or make your present more interesting.

What do you see? Take a few minutes look at the details: the composition, the mood, the light, the tiny details.

She will always be here as long as her image looks you in the eye and tells you, “I’m so glad you could join me.”

~ Juliette aka Vampire Maman

As We Were, a look into 19th Century photography, fashion, and culture. The idea came from my box of ghosts, or that is the many boxes I have full of 19th Century photos that need to be shared.

My regular readers will recognize some of the images, but there are many many many more that haven’t been seen for a long time.

Each 1st and 4th Wednesday I’ll share my photos, along with stories, thoughts on fashion like how bustles and hoop skirts really work, society, and other related subjects.

  1. As We Were: A Series About 19th Century Photography, Fashion, and Fun, 1840’s
  2. As We Were: Fabulous Hats
  3. As We Were: Men With Hats
