Memories As Art

I meant to spend today mastering Gimp and the graphics tablet I bought myself as a Christmas present over six years ago but haven’t used yet (I might as well bought myself aftershave and socks!).  However the tablet went wrong (the video card of the computer with the largest monitor also went awry) and I have as much chance of getting on top of gimp in a day as I have of discovering Atlantis!

Towards the end of the day I annotated some of my father’s slides – circa 1963-1967 with what I fear are over poignant labels.

I Was Thinking Then Of Me Thinking Now

    I don’t think they’re over poignant labels. They fit the pictures. Thank you for sharing them. I think that took a lot of openness and courage. And out of curiosity, what is that red dot to your right on the first one?

    Really like the first picture…there is a certain” time machine” aspect in my life right now,this resonates.

  5. I would happily go back there now. It was the little dining room (which we actually used as our main living space despite its small size) in our second house. My parents never owned a house: the first one was a farm tide cottage which went with my father’s employment and the second one was council owned – and it had a bath and inside toilet!
