Remember the days before instafilters and digital photo editing? Photos on film were captured automatically at the mercy of the film camera and eye of the photographer or through carefully tweaked manual settings. Then to get that rad filtered look, magic was done in the dark room or photos were left to age naturally in plastic and glue albums.

I had forgotten until my husband and I rediscovered a bunch of his family photos that were compiled for our wedding. As we went through them I was struck by how many of the photos appeared to have gone through phone camera filters. There is something about the colour and contrast in these old photos that give them insta-nostalgia. I also felt a wave of jealousy that all these great family trips to the Athabasca glacier and to the old family farm were taken before my time.
