Collage Obsession Challenge #3

This week the Collage Obsession Challenge gave us two images. The front - an older couple - and the back - advertisement for photographer - of a cabinet card. We could use both images together, just one or separately. I decided to go separate.

The first collage was of the old couple. I sat them in the front yard of an abandoned farm house. I read everyday of people losing their homes, farms not being able to break even. here the couple know their future is in what they have made - their children and grandchildren. Isn't that what the future is all about?

The second collage is really a background piece. I combined several photographs with the back of the cabinet card to make one background piece. I love the old feel it gives to the antique store.

A pair of collages! So both images and the word are used very creative way. I like them both, very nice layers and interesting details.

Thank you for participating. :))
