Ahhh, the perils of Search Engine Optimization!
Made this one for Annabelle Raven as a homage to her captions that often involve family members being changed into women/girls. She had the picture in her trading folder, and it definitely had that vibe she uses so often. Whenever I see landscape photos, I try to make sure that I can do the "text on photo" style, as text boxes don't work nearly as well when the picture spans the whole caption. The composition of the picture worked well though, as I got a few spots to lay down my text.
I didn't need that much space either, as I wanted it to be a slice of life for a somewhat newly transformed "Mom" and her "daughter" where much of everything they were experience was a "first" for them. In this case, it was a mother/daughter trip to the ice cream place .. which are finally open in my neck of the woods! Goddess I LOVE the smell of freshly made waffle cones!
The plot isn't anything exciting and new, but it does feel familiar. When things change, we always seem to want to compare the way it is against the way it used to be. I think it keeps us grounded and comforted too. They've both been changed, but they still have each other, even in a different body.
I could've went with Tom Waits but I'm definitely in a Diamond Dave mood tonight!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What is that ONE thing that you wait through all Winter long .. that you can't WAIT to have or do again when the Spring or Summer arrives? For my daughter, its that first trip to this local ice cream place that makes everything fresh and home made, from the ice cream to the waffle cones. Their ginger ice cream is In-fucking-credible! I always feel like its really Spring when I can bust out a pair of sandals and people don't think its strange.
