Have you ever browsed through an old dusty photo album containing photos of your grandparents?

Those photos, taken to imprint unforgettable images and moments on film, demonstrate that you do not need the newest and most powerful iPhone to capture a memorable image.

Just take a look and tell us whether or not these pictures of grandparents in their younger days are not magnificent!
