Where I Get my Vintage Images


Hello again! Two posts in a few minutes time... I'm on a roll! I just wanted to take a minute to answer a question that a few of you sweet sisters have asked me recently. "Where do you get your vintage images?" and the answer is I take them my myself. Here's how.

I have a running collection of vintage magazines, mostly from the 1950s, and most ladies' magazines like Good Housekeeping, Ladies Home Journal, etc. I use my digital camera, on the 'macro' setting, which allows you to take quality photos up-close, and I take photos of all the ad art and other illustrations in the magazines. I think load the photos into my Photobuck.com account, and I use their image editors to crop and brighten the photos to my liking. They are then stored online for whenever I chose to use them here at the blog. This is somewhat of a time-taking procedure, but I so enjoy it that it has become like a hobby to me.

I will still occasionally use other photos from public domain sites, and when I do so I make the photo a link to reference back to where I borrowed the image from, but the vast majority of he images used are from my own storehouse. That is why my 'image policy' on the left asks people to ask for permission before they use any of the photos, as I've worked to create them and feel that they make my blog unique.

Hopefully this answers your questions and I encourage you, if you come across some well-priced vintage mags, from whatever era, or picture books, to make use of this process, if you have the time. It's lots of fun!

God Bless, ladies!

I've wondered that myself! It's so hard to find some that are royalty or copyright-free. I've got a few old mags, so I guess I should go through them!

The effects are gradual and the result will vary for each user. However, further review show that most users experience benefits within the first week. In the first month you can expect erections that stay longer than usual and your penile may even start to become wider. penis enlargement pills - http://www.cucumaerot.com
