15/52: Get Pushed R21, Vintage Ad

For round 21 of Get pushed, I was paired with talented "k4♥wea". I suggest that you check out her stream for a great collection and some amazing flower closeups.

 

After exchanging a few emails, we agreed to do a common challenge. I was planning to do a vintage ad for the weekly theme of my 52 weeks project. she found the idea interesting and agreed to do the same. Here is my result.

 

I wanted to pick an old, obsolete item and create an ad that you could have seen in a newspaper sometime in the past. Maybe the 70's or 80's. I have very few items that fit the bill. It happened that in the last few hours of the week, as we were getting back from dinner, we found on our next door neighbor's lawn an old TV with a note on it that said, simply, "Free". You can guess the rest of the story.

 

The post-processing fits with the original idea I had, which is a newspaper ad. Actually, at some point I was going to try to create the newspaper page complete with the name and date. I might still try to do something like that in the future.
