"Time Travellin’ "- I chose this photograph because the angle, position, and clarity really spoke to me, and seemed fun to work with. My mashup was strongly inspired by comic books and pop art styles as I sort of created a short little 'comic strip' of the two tram cars interacting. I would like the viewers to know that this was a very fun project to do because the possibilities of what we could do for our 'photo mashups' were endless and totally left to our imaginations. So I would like for them to look at the original and think about what they might've done to mashup/recreate it!
