Time travel or ghosts of the past

Do you ever have a feeling when looking at a modern film photo that it was shot a long time ago?

Correct me if I’m wrong but nothing in this shot can give away the fact it was shot in 2012. To me, it looks like one of the pictures my father took in the 1970s or something. It’s so Soviet-y it hurts. Of course, a true historian would quickly spot the wrongs of the era, like the clothes style or something like that, but anyway.

It just amazes me how this simple combination of an old camera and film can make you time travel into the times you have never witnessed.
