Intriguing, amazing what vanity does to a person:)
And sometimes he just takes the shot out-of-focus.But either way it enhances the viewer's imagination.And pleases the subject.rel
I'm tempted to be cynical and say that none of Hollywood is real. It's all plastic, make up and lighting. But, they did know how to act back then and they were so much more 'real' than nowadays with all the plastic surgery and face lifts :)
Smoke and mirrors and Vaseline...
heh i agree with bren in that little in hollywood is real...be it vaselined or other wise...ha...
Diffusion is such a neat word- and I like how it would make you feelvaseline had been smeared- spreadinga softer view! yup thanks I like it:)
Nicely done! Now, I'm off to locate some vaseline . . .
Will it blur the wrinkles if I just rub it on my face instead??? Here's dreamin".
Yes, but can I put it on everyone else's glasses!? K.
Vaseline was much more kind than HD will ever bePeace ☮
On the sidebar tool of my Facebook page one ad constantly pops up ... the anti-wrinkle cream. If its just a jar of vaseline why don't they say?Lovely response
Brilliant and also the intro so informative ...thanks so much for sharing x x x
Helen....i love the way you think.....this is wonderful, and oh so true! :-)
I wonder what people would say if I went around rubbing vaseline on their glasses lenses? Ha!
Not much is real in Hollywood, I'm afraid.Hopefully more, elsewhere!Good write.=)
the poem is very real indeed....thanks for this
What a thoughtful piece this is ..it's all illusion..we forget!I've had a trick up my sleeve too...being a makeup artist!!
I'm at the point that vaseline is a thought :)
Great observation , the distinction between what is real and unreal seems to be blurring more with every passing day, as we realise the true nature of the fluid quantum field within which we are all enmeshed, and which responds to our observations , (draws deeply on scoobie)
It's amazing how unreal our own images of ourselves are. We want to think we're more handsome/beautiful than we are.
Is that so! It is amazing! It is not a deception but an art form. It gives a different view from norm. Clever! And a great verse!Hank
o the soft hazy glow can become so addictive, the achingly slow movement or perception of movement,the stillness trembles the mind.your prose is perfect for thischallenge and pic.
A very fine post. Reality and the 'not' are blurred now.
Now we have plastic surgery and Botox!
Excellent and informative! (I have clagged vaseline to the old face from my early twenties - and it really does keep the lines at bay - no need for Botox!)Anna :o]
totally unreali also saw the photograpic bend to thisdepth of field
Oh... fun... and full of facts. I may have to try this with my own camera. ;)I do like the way you used the words... how do I put it... they created a beat to poem. Illusion, diffusion, deception, etc. It could be the way I read it but any time a poem has a beat to it, in my opinion, it makes the meaning really stand out!
Hi Helen....i am back again to tell you i taged you in a fun blog get to know ya game.....if you do not want to do it that is totally cool.....just wanted you to know you were one of my pics. :-)
I had never heard of that. I think today's technology can cover up those flaws in other ways.
Reality is so much more interesting than perfection.
a beautiful blend of facts and fun ... enjoyed reading :)
In old movies the move from clear to 'vaseline' was so sudden I would laugh. Not a good thing to do in a movie house just as the heroine was about to be kissed!
Nice take, but I suppose Photoshop has supplanted all that. My late Magpie is Lifesaver.
Ah, yes... The manufactured image!
