Gas masks scare me. It only takes a thought about their purpose. However, whilst researching for this picture it would appear a lot of people have a fetish for gas masks. I couldn’t say why, but I guess that’s why they’re called fetishes. Each to their own!
With this, I wanted something so normal (or rather so retro) as a husband kissing his wife before leaving the home but put an odd spin on it. Gas masks were the first thing that came to mind – you certainly can’t kiss anyone whilst wearing them. As for the surrounding, well everything’s post-apocalyptic these days so let’s assume the world’s end is nigh here. Taking something so odd and having to deal with it like it’s the norm.
I guess the idea came from playing Half-Life 2 for the first time. Those CP’s aren’t your friends. And maybe a bit of Call of Duty 4, good game, but sick.
On a brighter note, you could say this shows love conquering all! Yes, I’ll leave it as that.
