You know what they say, old is gold, and this could not ring any truer for a local photographer who picked up an antique camera that was actually loaded with vintage photographs from the era of the World War I.
Anton Orlov, an analog photographer enthusiast who resides in the University City area in San Diego picked up a 1901 Bellini Jumelle photo camera at an antique shop near Los Angeles recently for a Benjamin, and after investing hours cleaning it, he took a peek inside – only to be pleasantly surprised by eight already developed photographs that were snapped over a century ago.

Some of these shots include airplanes from World War I, ruins, soldiers on horses and even a bomb. Orlov naturally gushed, “I was pretty flabbergasted.I’ve never seen images like that come out of the camera already developed.” He continued his love for film photography as this is capable of withstanding the test of time, at least longer than an SD memory card, relatively speaking.
