This photo was inspired by recent events down south… I call it “Trump Surveys Wall Sample.”

 “We are making walls great again!”

Expanded the canvas and filled it with content aware,

Flipped Donald the other way. Mostly because I’m using this for my Facebook profile photo, and I like to have it facing my feed.

Decided where I wanted a vignette…

Then blurred that vignette,

Then lowered the opacity till it made Mr. Trump stand out… More then usual.

Final Thoughts

During the beginning of this epic horror show of an election I posted this photo on flicker:

2015-02-08-12-07-40

I titled this photo “Donald Trump Comb-Over.”
Some time later I posted this photo:

 

2015-08-25-10-54-23

And titled that photo “Hilary Clinton Campaign Photo.”
Five minutes later someone said that the Hilary title was being quite cruel.

I was quick to change the title.
I like to think I influenced just enough people in Pennsylvania in that five minutes, to change the tide of the last election of those great “United States of America” in the direction of the man who’s hairstyle was inspired by this weird bird.
