Lou Lisi's 25th

By TyChee    
It's getting rare these days for anyone to last 25 years at the same company in corporate America. Recently we celebrated such an achievement at my company by throwing one of our long-timers a party. Tee shirts were printed for the affair and almost everyone in attendance was wearing one. The only camera I had with me that day was my little Samsung L73 that I carry in my backpack every day. I guess you get used to the speed of a digital SLR and it seemed as it I missed "the moment" to a sluggish shutter in almost every shot. Hoping to salvage something... I had this one picture of the back of the tee shirt being worn by a good friend of Lou's. I got the idea to try to make a poster out of that image as a gift to him. I ended up spending more time than I care to admit on this. Sometimes the more simple looking something is the more complicated it is to create.

BTW....The guy on the shirt is Lou. The slogan is how he starts almost every conversation. Smile

Would love to hear your comments or suggestions.

its rare in this country for anyone to last that long, probably for the same reasons!! considering the equipment you had this is excellent, dont those delayed shutters just kill the moment!!
