Vintage Valentine

Tags : 

I love history of all kinds and I enjoy revitalizing really old, public domain, black and white photos. These images are usually very small and low quality but I have fun creating all kinds of art with them.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Containers

Tags : 

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge I thought the good old Mail Box would be a good fit. The above artwork is my poke at email, but imagine if we didn’t have email just how full these containers would be. Or would they? We send billions of emails, many of which would have to be
