The start of May came and went and I didn’t even realise! It’s already May 4th (Star Wars Day) as I write this and I seem to have walked into a new month in a daze. I guess it’s called being ultra busy!
So as it’s a new month we have a new Art Tag from Time Holtz. This month he’s feeling all nostalgic! he says on his tag blog post:
“there are certain things that capture a sense of nostalgia, and for me this month’s tag is certainly one of them.”
For me, the past isn’t always a pleasant country to visit. I for one don’t look back with fond memories as some do, for me the past is behind me and I look forward to today and tomorrow. Things are better now than they ever have been.
I know my choice of picture for my tag will not suit everyone, some will not understand my reason for using the image that I have. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I create for me, but share in the hope that someone else will appreciate what I’ve created and take some inspiration from it. I don’t imagine for one minute I’m going to please everyone, everytime.
The photobooth images we’re taken in 1953, in Edmonton, Canada. It was taken at a time when the young couple in the photo could have been arrested and imprisoned just for a sharing a simple token of their affection. As I said earlier, the past wasn’t always a golden age!
Since the invention of the first coin operated photo-booth in 1883, just imagine how many kisses have been stolen behind that curtain!
So once again, I’m sharing my creative process on video. My hope is that you find something in it of use.
