If you're yearning for the good old days, just turn off the air conditioning.
Another look at the 'Mile-High Swinging Bridge' at Grandfather Mountain -- this photo was taken on Father's Day and was made to look old with the addition of two 'texturized' layers in Photoshop. One added a burlap texture/color and the other added the dark vignette/border to the image. I also desaturized the underlying photo to give it more of a faded look. Here's a helpful video tutorial on how it's done. Click here to see another Grandfather photo that I worked on.
