Take a Word - Time

Time is a gossamer thing.  Sometimes it passes slowly and sometimes so swiftly it takes our breath away.  I've always loved the stories that begin "Once upon a time", and old snapshots always recall the phrase to my mind.  This old photo from Flickr Collage Images became the focus of this piece, with some elements from Create Wings Designs.  I wonder what their children grew up to be ... and their children ... and their children's children who just might be your neighbors...who knows!   Thanks for indulging me!!

  8. I love the way you constructed this piece. It's really beautiful, yet striking in its simplicity. I often wonder about the animals from photos of long ago.
