Oh how I love autochrome photos! They capture a romance, a fading romance like no other. Fading in light at least. I don't pretend to understand how autochrome photographs were made and even the simplest Wikipedia info is above my head regarding this technique. But I do know that it was used mainly in the early 1900s into the 30s and that the photos are gorgeous. No matter what season the photos were taken in, to me, it always feels like the dying light of a warm early autumn day. Like the remaining flowers only have so long before their long sleep begins.
