Great-Uncle Casperson by Barb Leopold

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Our little chihuahua, Casper, was rummaging through his trunk today when he found this image of his Great-Uncle Casperson, as a boy, for whom he was named. I immediately thought to share it with you all!

A bit of playful editing, in the style of these two talented artists, Martine Roch

and my dear friend, Karen Scrimes

both of whom have inspired the idea behind this image.

The original vintage image was provided by lorivintage55 here

*This image featured in the group Graphic Editing 101 in June 2009. Thanks from Great-Uncle Casperson and me!

And a feature in Image/Writing in December 2010. Thank you so much!**

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.
