They didn't have cameras in those days, Frank.

And...I doubt anyone had actually thought about PP.

Otherwise...points for a brave attempt, Lad.
Frank L Croston.: Don't mince your words Firstly, I'm pretty sure I didn't claim to have taken it at the time.....Secondly, I don't see your point, does this mean we can only portray images of the past using materials of the time ? If so you are pretty much destroying a large amount of the the film and T.V. industry, as no more historical films/programs can be made.
Lastly, you have every right to criticise my pictures, but please just do that and don't patronise me with ' brave attempt, lad'.
Whatever, Ray

I think it's an amazing composite... exploring and depicting what these folks might have done when they first walked to the edge of the Canyon. Stop, breathe, gaze, take it in... Kind of like the rest of us! smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, I'm glad you think so.

Very good Frank, as for Ray , what can I say.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Michael, well, he has a right to his own opinion...See you Friday, Bud.

Seems like I stepped over a line with a crude attempt a humour...

The last para is an Australian way of saying "Brilliant"

Earnest apologies...flailing myself with whip as I type
Frank L Croston.: Put the whip down Ray...It's only a photograph/ painting,
yeah whatever..
This works fab for me too
Frank L Croston.: I'm glad it does, Aderonke, thanks.

I think this is great - a clever and effective combination of pictures
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Anne, I'm pleased you like it, I really liked the style of the artwork, and wanted to use it in someway.
a wonderful idea, well executed...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Larry.
I think Elizabeth sums it up, this will have happened many times over as the far west was explored for sure and it is very cleverly done, indeed just to have the idea in the first place shows great imagination.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian, very nice of you to say so.

Oh very clever! A great piece of work! Can you imagine what the first people to set eyes on the Canyon must have thought? I've seen it several times for myself and it still makes stand in awe.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan. I thought about this the first time I visited it, the thing that struck me is you have no clue of it during the drive to it...Just flat forest land, and then you come to the edge, they must have thought it was the edge of the world....
This is real art... I love it.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Jacquelyn, that's very nice of you.
