Oh No, I forgot to Post #100, plus #101

This is #100. It is the first one that I haven't put the number on the front because I couldn't rubber stamp the three digits close enough to punch out a little circle, as I've done in the past. I have to figure out what to do about this. So I just punched out little circles. The torn paper background is from a very old envelope that held a glass negative. Perhaps the photo of the two men holding hands was made using a glass negative; I don't know. The image was gleaned awhile back from some magazine. There was no explanation with this image. It reminded me of images of Chang and Eng, the con-joined twins, from whom the name Siamese Twins was derived. I saw a photo of them at the Mütter Museum .  Number 100 earned me a congratulations from my son, my 365 guru.

So what did I do for #101? Something totally different in feeling.  I have several of these baby heads from an old advert, from a National Geographic magazine. I just wanted to do something incongruous and doesn't this just work? The background is from a VMFA magazine, a print of some kind, and the little girl in the foreground is from an old magazine, too. I titled this one "Deep water." It makes me laugh.
