Early this morning I downloaded the Retro Camera app for my android phone, on a whim. I started taking a few pictures of my commute with it, and I realized that some of the industrial settings I was commuting through would make cool photos for use in some sort of noir RPG campaign. It also occurred to me that I work in a place with many buildings that date from the mid 19th century. I think these photos could easily be used in a noir, lovecraftian, early modern d20 or other similar campaign.
I managed to snap around 38 photos this morning, and modified a few with GIMP to look even older. Clicking on a photo will bring you right to Flickr.
