 Contrast Challenge

 
 Me as a Hippy.

Almost Original 70's something

Contrasting 70's Something

Contrasting 70's something

More Contrast 70's Something

Contrasting Different

              

Silver Contrast.

Just a Shadow.

This photo was taken by my brother ,needless to say many years ago.

And as you can see there is such a varying contrast to them.

Whilst I was only experimenting, I must admit I do like them. Only hope ye who pops in to view likes them also.

  6. These are wild, Gerry! Very creative. You should do something with them all together — as a set: create a set of note cards or use them as a set-up for a story — something!

    and you playing guitar 2012!

    • Yours Woodstock mine Isle of Wight, but magical events. I was lucky enough to meet a few from this era and styles of music. Thank you Isadora for your lovely support…

      • Gosh … I never knew there was another type of event like Woodstock. I didn’t get to go – too young – but it was all over the news. Always learning new things. Love it …!!! Thanks

        Comment by Inside the Mind of Isadora | March 11, 2012

  19. I like the inverse coloring–black on white. Somehow it’s more dramatic. Groovy, maybe. Were’t the 70’s fun??

  21. This is nice! Can’t wait to see the pics clearly from my laptop later.

    I’m only 22 now. My only experience of the 60s and 70s is through tv shows like ‘I dream of Jeannie’ 🙂 I like life back then. So much more innocent and simple. But there was no internet, I’d miss that a lot 😛

    Comment by Felix | March 11, 2012 | Reply

    • Thanks for visit and comment. I would not want to offend but I dream of Genie is not a good representation of that era. Al be it a decent program, we in the UK did not get it until rather later. As for internet if you dont know of it you wont miss it. I miss as of todays way of life. I love it, Would not be ta;king to you and many others world wide it is ‘Fab’ Thank you for comments and visit.
