Things I Love Thursday: Retro Travel and Hipstamatic

Wildwood Boardwalk

During the last week or two I have been reminiscing about past trips to Wildwood and looking at a lot of photos on Flickr and Wildwood discussion boards for inspiration for our next trip. One of the reasons I wanted to go to Wildwood last year was to capture the retro beauty of Wildwood through the Hipstamatic lenses. We are taking a short trip there again and I’m really excited about taking pictures because there are so many new lenses and films to use since our last visit. There are so many different aspects to focus on, such as neon signs, doowop architecture, the boardwalk and diners.

While searching Wildwood sites I found the RetroRoadmap blog. I love this blog because it has the same type of sensibilities that I have. It brings back memories of road trips with my family where we would stop at roadside attractions (like a house where water ran up hill) and buy fun things like apple head dolls.

Here are some old photos from last years trip that I hadn’t posted before:

  1. Thanks for the shout out to Retro Roadmap! And from the looks of it you went to our favorite Wildwood Motel, The Caribbean. I could spend ages taking photos of all of the signs down there- love your stuff!
