Mixed Media Monday: Its Not All Black and White


The mixed media monday challenge this week is to create something predominantly Black and White. I chose these dashing guys, taken from a photography book.  They are from France at the turn of the century.  You know the century BEFORE the last one, actually.  I am not sure if they are clergy or barristers or learned gentleman.  But i layered them on a page of "vetements ecclesiatiques" from an old French school book.  The quote is one of favorite lines from The Birdcage.  "Well, one does want a HINT of colour...!"  In the movie it refers to when Albert is trying to dress like a man - in a dark suit with bright pink socks.
