Good day to you all! Another quick post this week to share this latest creation 'Ma Jeunesse' (My Childhood). For this image I actually conceived the idea of showing how time and our youth are related. It's a subject that for some reason plays on my mind more and more these days. Time seems to just flyby, and before you know it Christmas has arrived... again! The books shown in the image were picked up at a boot sale in France by my partner. I've been on the lookout for some really old books but didn't want to pay a small ransom for them (eBay in this instance wasn't really proving any good). However these two books printed back in 1904 were only 3 Euro for the pair!
The butterflies were from a pack you can get on Amazon for only a few pound. I just took a few shots to get different angles/lighting and then dropped them in. Overall I'm really pleased how the image turned out and I love the overall feeling and tone the image has.
