Inspired by Celestine's LO HERE

Beginnings White-ish Paper Mini

MFish_Masked Memories (Adapted, retired)

Font - Copperplate Gothic, Apple Garamond Light

Photo - My Dad's. 

I scanned this picture of my dad's from a slide many many years ago, never sure how I would scrap it. Celestines challenge and layout inspired me to dig this out and work with it. Because it's scanned from a slide the resolution isn't the greatest so I used a filter to make it black and white and masked out the flags to see the color.

Oh, I remember this, walking home from school and sadly looking at the half mast flag and wondering who could take his place-I don't remember much except feeling very sad. He was a good president.

This is such a sobering image and stark in its reality. You have conveyed so much emotion in making it all black and white except the flag. The white space and sideways date add to the hollow feeling. It is very special that you used a slide from your dad. Thanks for joining the challenge.

Your photo is so striking and truly shows the mood of the time - so devastating.  Your photo treatment really enhances it all and I like how you've made only the flag in color.   You journaling adds form to your page as does your title.   Great job on viscerally creating the somber and empty feeling of that time and so nice you could use your Dad's photo..
