I bought these curious cards at a garage sale several years ago. I had no idea what to do with them - frame, hang on a ribbon, use in a collage... But I've always loved them and wonder who the people were and who of the group made these collages. There's no name or any kind of clues, so I'll just have to guess about this fun loving group.
Here's my questions about this photo:
Does the lady in the inner tube have a swimming suit on? Sure doesn't look like it.
And that woman in the middle - didn't her mother ever tell her to "stand up straight"?
Why aren't those water buffaloes taking any notice of this odd group?
Why are these two fully-clothed ladies merrily going down the river while the buffaloes are heading up ?
What did the original photo look like? Were these ladies sitting on a log? or what? Their legs fit so snugly around this log. What were they previously sitting on?
Why are they dressed so warmly while they're dangling their feet in the cool water (one appears to even be wearing a hat)?
And why are the water buffaloes taking no notice of these women either? They could care less!
Why is one adventuress lady wearing her swimming costume, while the other two modest ladies are fully clothed?
Doesn't the boat appear to be levitating off the lake?
And here's the piece de résistance. I told you this was a fun loving group:
It wasn't a pick!!
