    I love photos. I started out ONLY wanting to collect the autographs from Fritz Lang's Metropolis. As I looked, I started seeing other autographs I wanted. Then I started seeing tin types, and then the flood gates opened. I won't pay much for my photos. But, I have some really nice ones.

    BTW: I completed Metropolis a while ago. I couldn't get a signed photo from Erwin Biswanger. You can't even find a photo that isn't from Metropolis online. I got a drawing he did of an actress, and it's signed Biswanger. That's a rarity.

    This is a few old photos from my collection.
    My first tintype. She looks so modern.

    There are some that the images are too large, and it's time for me to go to bed. These are some of the Metropolis and Lang actors.

    There is no such word as ONLY for collectors.;) It always gets out of hand.:arghh::joyful:
    Great photos though, the girl on the tintype is lovely. I love the Lang actors, and always good to see something from "Die Nibelungen", such fantastic stylization in every aspect of the movie.
    Maybe cousins? I believe that is accepted in some communities.

    You're right they do. I didn't even notice that. I like it because of the top hat.

    I know. I start out small and just start piling on. I have over 3000 blu rays. I still have 700 to watch, and finally stopped looking for more. We're not at hoarder stage yet. But, we're getting there.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    Sounds like you are also collecting films! Metropolis is a great one.

    And thanks for sharing part of your photo collection. I'm partial to portraiture, and like all of the ones that you included.
