Fauxtographs

I’ve had an interest in photography for many years – ever since the old days of Box Brownies and three-day waits for poorly framed black and white pictures to come back from the local chemist. One thing I love about the digital age is the instant gratification of bringing images up on screen within seconds of pressing the button. And, of course, I love the ability of programs like Irfanview and Paint Shop Pro to help me fix up my stuff-ups.

One extra advantage of image editing software is that it allows me to display photos of things that don’t exist, or that I haven’t actually seen. Things that are an amalgam of the real world and that of my imagination – in other words, fauxtographs…

Update:- On the other hand, the more I see of the word “fauxtograph”, the more I hate it. I think it has to go.
