Flower Power

I came across these great photos from Ibiza from 1977 by accident and they seemed so colourful and groovy that I couldn't help mentioning them here.

I like the way how light and colour interact in photos from the 70s and the 80s taken with those old cameras - they are simply amazing! Many photographers attepmt to obtain this effect in their works nowadays - which is not that easy. These old photos seem to have so much detail to them and for some reason they always give you this unexplainable warm feeling when you look through the pages of old photo albums. The reason again could be the warmer subdued colours...

Ibiza attained global fame as a place for fun and freedom in the 1960s thanks to hippie movement and its acceptance by the local population of the island. Several Hippie colonies remain on the island today. I'm saving modern Ibiza pictures I took when I was on the island for the future posts and meanwhile here are some more of the hip flower power photos:

I can only imagine what those people in the last photo look like today! I imagine many of the hippies from the 60's and 70's are still rather hippy-ish today! =) Great photos!

Amazing photos Olga! I like all the old photos, but especially those ones of the 2 decades, 60s and 70s. There is too much NOSTALGIA in the photos of that time...

Have a nice sunny day, my friend!

Indeed, the photos make you want to live the life of the 70es...
