The Old Days

Today I was doing some spring cleaning and came across a box of old photos. Inside the box, I found pictures from when I was around the age 13. I don't know about you, but almost everyone I know got taken to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for vacation at least once as a kid. 

Inevitable while we were there, we would see one of those "Old Timey" photo shops. It never failed, every year we would go inside, strip down half our clothing and become either "women of the night" or "proper" ladies. This was the last "Old Timey" photo we took on vacation. This is from when I was about 14....I think. I know I was in middle school still. 
     
(Obviously we became women of the night...that time)

Have any of you ever done these photos? Or was I the only one that use to get dragged down to TN and tricked into taking Old photos with the family?

I've done those photos before. We grew up in a tourist area so they were pretty common.

Gatlinburg,TN is one of my favorite places! My two older sisters had these done when they were younger and they were ladies of the night as well:p I love them!!!

Aw, I've been to Gatlinburg! I didn't go as a kid, I went during spring break one year in college. It was SO much fun --about 25 of us rented out a huge cabin for the week and went skiing and sightseeing and whatnot. :)

I don't think I've officially taken the Old-timey photos -- I've always wanted to though! The closest I've come is using the sepia setting on my camera, lol.

I've never taken one of those shots, but maybe one day I'll force my boys to partake just to get them back for all the early mornings!

I've done those once. It was a family picture when we were in Las Vegas. It was at Excalibur, so we were all wearing Medieval styles costumes.
