RT @kane: New project: photoshopping smartphones into classic paintings. https://t.co/qzACXuoqoS
Love this, on top of it being a favourite painting.

Ok, while I appreciate retro to a degree I’d be more inclined to appreciate a classic, though the price for this is OK, but for anyone who wants to create a 30-50 second movie surely they would use the movie option on your standard camera, or one of the many smartphone apps available?
I don’t actually know what film costs now, or the cost of developing a roll, even where you can get this done other than sending it away now, but in this day and age of disposable media how may people would go for, lets say £5, for a bit less than a minute of film?
I used an original Lomo back in the mid eighties, it may even still be among my parent’s possessions, but I really can’t see why I should want to use it now with the availability of so much easy post-processing software, and the ease of carrying a camera that is so much better at being a camera.
I guess it still applies, the best camera is the one you have with you, and the talent is behind the camera, not in it.
You’d never guess I have a love of pre-1950 transport posters and advertising…
They just have style in spades, even though these are obviously austerity print jobs. I also note the appearance of British Railways by up to 7 years before it was actually a reality.
Normally I’d just say I like a piece of art, or not.
If I like it I’ll look deeper into it, but this guy grabs my attention every time. Its art I ‘get’ without explanations, on multiple levels.
Maybe it doesn’t need too much thought, maybe that why it has popular appeal, but either way I understand the message, and love the art.
