    Alright folks, let's see your pictures of what you consider to be a modern representation of the Golden Era/Art Deco Era. Show us your best shot!

    I'll start: here is our 13yo son Daniel in front of a vintage roadster at the Art Deco Society of Northern California's Gatsby Summer Afternoon 13September2009. btw, that cigareet is a candy one...

    What a fun shot! Luckily your son has many more years ahead of him to get more vintage style shots. :)

    Here's my favourite shot of myself. Taken in Napier, New Zealand in 2006 when I was crowned 'Bathing Belle'.

    We don't have Photoshop, otherwise I'd remove the people in the background!

    Dinerman, ChanteuseCarey,

    Those two photos are beautiful! I wasn't aware you could still buy candy cigarettes...I wonder where I can find some. Dinerman, that piano looks beautiful.

    **itches to play it**

    Thank you Miss Sis!
    What a great picture, and WE do have Photoshop... Let me see what we can do here, we have the technology.

    ICONIC is too strong a word for this shot, but I do like the whole feeling about it...

    I feel cleanliness. I smell starch, and Fels Naphtha*, and the hot-metal tang of a waiting steam iron. The comfy old-rubber scent of the mangle. The rainy ozonated air of line-dried washing waiting for me to fold. Dust baking inside a five-tube wooden cabinet reverberating with The Romance of Helen Trent or some local 100-watter spinning platters in between police calls. Cookies cooling on a bake sheet in an open window.

    I feel the distinct expectation that I go out and mow grass. The folding will wait.

    *Kind of like Dial, really. I think. It's been decades.

    I love it! I'm getting more into "regular" ladies and "working" ladies than movie stars these days :)
