Classic: of the first or highest quality, class, or rank: a classic pieceof work. Classic, for me, presents a timeless quality that out-stands trends and fads. However influential modern and avante-garde photographs may be, those that are classic will last and be admired the longest.
This image represents a classical time when women would ALWAYS dress up fancy, with little hats, dresses, etc. The only difference is that in this one, the woman is to be perceived as a crazy person, with the dramatic make-up and mischievous look in her eyes.
First off let me say, you are amazing! You were always there for me when I needed you, and for that I thank you…but I've moved on. I'm sorry, it's just that you slow me down. There's a whole exciting world out there, and…and…I'm not going to just sit around waiting for you. I'm really sorry...I have to go.
A old rotary phone from the early 1900's. The phone still works, all that new is a new phone jack cord, which was replaced in 1987. Its a great phone to have around, because when the power goes out it still works. Thank god for old classic phones.
1960's America: classic traditions race head to head with a now embarrassingly classic futurism. An explosion of modernity sweeps the Western world. Mom no longer knows what's best; science does. Ranch-style suburbanism and golf weekends push out family evenings and hamburger joints. Somehow, in the confusion, orange becomes the upholstery color of choice, and Tiki lounges seem like a great idea.
I spied this at the Denver Modernism Show this weekend and grabbed the nearest camera. Here an established form of old school fun is seemingly abandoned for a future full of Bakelite promises and electric cooking bliss.
Modernity. Is. Awesome. Just ask Charles Phoenix.

Classic can be defined in many ways . . .
When classic comes to mind, I think of
black and white and polka dots.
However, there are other things that are classic that aren't necessarily black and white.
Another classic thing that has always struck my mind is this adorable iconic.
(which you all know who it is heh)

What is 'Classic'? Wikipedia states it is "..something of lasting worth or with a timeless quality." There are so many things people classify as classic. An old car, a song, or some other physical object. To me, classic is an older person living life and having fun. Whether it be the old man I met down town Tuesday pretending to be George Clooney because I had my camera or my mom helping with a portrait session and having some fun with me. This picture will have some timeless quality to me.
