This black and white photo is one of my favorite images of all time. I love black and white photographs. They simply seem more interesting than color.  Perhaps it’s a nostalgia thing?

This photo below captures both the beauty of a black and white image and my love of football. I was probably about 8-years-old when I saw this pic in my Dad’s newspaper. I was big into scrapbooks at the time and I cut this photo out and pasted it into my football scrapbook. My Dad wasn’t amused as he hadn’t finished reading the paper 🙂

He was a well-known footballer of that era. See the Secret Content box below to find out his name and the club he played for.

This pic below was one of the all-time greats. Alfredo Di Stefano of Real Madrid. Guys like me of a certain age can never forget the great European Cup Final of 1960 held in Glasgow.  Real Madrid 7 Eintracht Frankfurt 3!  And the attendance was 127,000!

That’s him on the far right in the familiar Real Madrid all-white kit. They were one great side and he was one great player.

Nostalgia 🙂
