I changed the number -

"Rediscovering Jane"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
- original photograph by John Mora -

First, many thanks to my good friend and outstanding artist, John Mora, for blanket permission to use some of his photographs. Second, the woman reminds me of Jane, an old girlfriend from close to thirty years ago now. Every five years or so, lovely Jane would give me a call to see how I was doing and to catch me up on her own life. Somewhere along the line, many moves and changes in telephone numbers finally put that to rest I'm afraid. I have a series of such images and if I have the strength to run through some very old archives, I may post them again at an opportune moment. Til then, have a peek at the before & after of this piece at No Matter What Shape-The Archive. Enjoy.

I like the original and this manipulated both.

Janes are worth remembering.

It's amazing how some people can leave such a warm touch on our hearts even after many years.

Back in the day, the two of us were very free-spirited. I won't forget that warm place in the midst of some turbulent personal times.

Do you believe Jane would recognize herself on this image?

Perhpas not; it's very impressionistic so stumbling across it may or may not fire the gaps of memory. :)
