Yes, the subject of the 懐かしい adjective is the thing that's considered to be nostalgic. In other words, the sensory input (or memory/thought/etc) that ellicits the nostalgia. However, if you want to emphasize the state of mind (i.e., the feeling) of nostalgia, you can do so by combining 懐かしい with 気持ち. For example: あの道を歩いたら、何となく懐かしい気持ちになってきた。
