Everything Old Is New Again
|Timeless Fashion: photo by Cliff Hutson|
This kind of came home to me this past weekend when I took an unposed photograph at an event where people were picnicking and some had dressed up for the occasion of celebrating “Champagne and Croquet”on a Sunday afternoon. Honestly, my first thought when I saw this guy was, ‘that reminds me of a French impressionist painting’, and I tried to frame the photo to replicate what I thought I remembered seeing sometime in the past.
The next day I spent a little time doing Internet searches to find the painting I had in mind, but could not find anything very close to it. This very famous painting by Georges Seurat, thanks to the figure in the lower lefthand corner, kind of works though.
