Ike Spake...

"Things are more like they are now than they ever were before."

- Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States

During the 50s, the Technicolor order of the time irritated intellectuals who detested the glue that held the cultural moment together.

Daddies worked in grey flannel or denim so that mommies could raise kids in families that drove to Dairy Queen for a weekend after-church treat. One job was good enough to handle all of that with health care, and pension dreams... During the 50s, when there was too much sun.

Things are less like that now than they ever ware before... Eh? And intellectuals have bleached away the Technicolor sheen from memories snap-shot... during the 50s.

Biking just out of Lancaster I stalked Ike's thoughts in the squint-glare of mid-day. Canon G10, ISO 200, 30.5mm at f/3.2. PP in PS4 w/AlienSkin: Exposure 4: high contrast enhanced AnscoChrome faded. Filter custom designed w/SnapArt3 - tailored layering of impasto rendered as cellphone strokes.
