  1. I say hommage. Totally reminiscent of Hockney’s pool polaroids I grew up seeing in L.A. Love it.

    I just came across an old photo album my grandmother put together after a trip to Europe with her aunt. The last ten pages were of postcards of famous sites she visited. I wondered if people still do that. Buy postcards and put them into albums. It made me buy a postcard. It made me think about doing that more often.

    One of my favorite spots in Paris! This makes me want to drive there right now…

    “Our souls as well as our bodies are composed of individual elements which were all already present in the ranks of our ancestors. The “newness” in the individual psyche is an endlessly varied recombination of age-old components.” Carl Jung… a lot of words to say, or sing “everything old is new again”…

  7. I have always loved Hockney’s ‘joiners’ and admire him for so willingly embracing new technology and different ways of seeing and working. His exploration of the use of the camera obscure by classical painters, starting with Caravaggio [I believe] was a revelation to me. They way you did the above, to me is so much more interesting than the seamless ‘joining’ Photoshop will do!

  8. Your puzzle fell into beautiful place, Roger.
