I have never in my life been so inspired by a complete stranger, let alone a stranger that lived some 50 years ago and probably does not know her found photographs have been scanned on the internet and shared for people to admire.

These are photos of Ty. A wife of a bloke, is he American, is he European, is he Australian? We don't know. But he seems to adore his wife very much as most of the photographs were of her looking impeccably put together while they travel through Hong Kong in the 1960s.

Is it weird to say I want photos like these of me? Candid moments that perhaps in the distant future someone will blog about and think "Wow, this woman had such style, I wish I was her!"

  5. very nice indeed. i guess it's how well the pictures were taken cos i see many women of that time being able to look as nice or maybe even nicer, just that they didn't have such nice shots documented. i know i want to be my ma when i see her travel pictures.

  10. Mrs. "Ty" has a wonderful sense of style. The best asset to her style has got to be her smile! :)
