Take a Word Challenge: Vintage




This digital piece was inspired by some vintage photos I've gathered of people motoring around in their newfangled machines. (I'm reminded that my grandparents always called my parents' car "the machine".)

Awesome piece: They way you kept the entire photos, the contrast between the b&w and the colorful background and, most important, the sense of humor.

I am laughing at the double meaning in your quote, Sherry. Were those girls driving too fast or were they just plain fast gals? An old expression never used today.

I love your collage which is so rich in colour and movement - and funny!
