Upon waking up at 7AM, which isn't usual for me(but will be very soon when i have to rise for an 8 0'clock class)...i got on flickr to feed my addiction, & was quickly reminded why i've always been so amazed at the unabashed beauty of vintage photos of actresses from the early 20th century.  
Seriously, the photos of those women who appeared in silent films, black & whites, etc, radiate (natural) beauty like no other. You can not match it these days, even with the highest quality digital cameras and photoshop enhancements.

Yeah, I woke up early today as well. I move back to Conway in the morning. I still do not know which dorm I will be in, but I know it will be the right one. Those pictures are beautiful. I think my favorite one is the profile picture of the blonde about to kiss, I think.

The pictures are beautiful indeed, of high quality (which is rare to find), though I prefer the 1940 era (more feminine than the twenties or thirties).
