I haven't participated in Raw(e) in awhile...I know, bad me. In all honesty though, I was trying to cut back on the blog hops a bit, so I took a break. When I saw the theme for this week, vintage, I knew I had to give it a shot.

Normally when you're going for a vintage look, you edit the photo until it looks like it came from a long time ago.  But that option is out of the question with Raw(e), as no editing whatsoever is allowed. 

I searched and searched for a photo opportunity; something that looked "vintage". Because I couldn't edit a photo to look more old fashioned, it was quite a challenge (a good one, though :)).

A few days ago, I sat down at my desk. For some reason, I'd decided to move a free standing mirror (that looks rather old fashioned) to the desktop so I could do my makeup that morning. When I sat down, the mirror reflected a poster I have on the wall opposite my desk. A poster that looks very vintage. Suddenly it hit me. I grabbed my camera, careful not to leave the position I was in so I wouldn't mess up the angle. 

Here's what I got.

What do you think? I wish I could have gotten the bottom part of the poster out of the "frame", but then I would have had the top part. Ah well.
