Rich man's disease & photomontages
For the last two weeks I've had the gout, known as the "rich man's disease". I'm not rich, so why did I get gout ? It first happened to me when I lived in Paris, must have been the rich food and wine. This painful event occurs about every four or five years. My father had gout, it must run in the family.
My girlfriend, Gloria, came down from Grand Rapids to baby me. She cooked meals, fed me pills, picked up my mail and did some shopping. The only thing she wouldn't do is to buy a little nurse's outfit from Frederick's that I recommended she wear. The cartoon of Gloria was done on the computer.
While bedridden I tried to do some work on the computer, but with three cats it was not easy.
The Scarlet Macaw Art Center in Sawyer, Michigan is planning on having a photographic exhibition soon and I though that I would enter some new photo montages. Here is the hallway in my home to which I added three red spheres. The spheres are actually a red ball that my cats play with, I've used it in many of my photo montages.
I shot this photo near my house of the sun rising and added a red sphere for the fun of it. The computer is the perfect medium for creating photo montages.
