OK, I am just playing with my Elements program, but I kind of liked the way this turned out. I was going through some stuff in the garage last night and I ran across my Grandfather's WW1 helmet and canteen. I thought about them and considered a still life. Color didn't do anything for me and the black and white was more impressive. Then I got carried away.
You don't hear much about WW1, it was completely overshadowed by Hitler and WW2. Although the way the victory and the vanquished were handled at the end of WW1 probably led to Hitler and WW2. The stories that my Grandfather used to tell were bone chilling, he really didn't talk about it very often. He saw Paris and much of France. He was present at the inauguration of Woodrow Wilson before the War.
I hope everyone has a great Friday.
