A Perfect World.

One of my assignments in my digital class this semester was to create a perfect world using at least 4 different photographs.
Here is what I came up with - in my perfect world, Jeff and I would be traveling the world, foot-loose and fancy free. I also used several things from the 1950s - the luggage, clothing, Jeff's hat, the DC3 in the sky, the camera perched on the suitcase - because I wanted to evoke a time when flying was a privilege and something exciting, as opposed to now, when people take it for granted and complain about 20 minute delays. Which I of course have never done.



Of course, Jeff and I do not live in a perfect world. And this is a little more what our world looks like...and the funniest outtake I have seen in a long time. It was super stormy and windy when we took the photos of us, combined with the awkwardness of a tripod and a timer and running back and forth up and down a hill over and over. Despite Jeff's extreme worry here, he managed to still look at the camera as it snapped.
