"Thumbs Up" ~ One Image - Multiple Effects

in #gems11 months ago (edited)

One perk of the stay at home orders during the Covid-19 pandemic is that many of us have become more creative and found new hobbies to occupy our time. #quarantinelife

In olden days, a person walking along a road or highway holding his or her hand positioned outstretched with the thumb upward in the air meant the person was trying to hitch a ride. "Hitchhikers," they were called. Many free spirited Hippies relied on hitchhiking as a primary means of transportation.

Fortunately during the peak of this trend in the 70s I was too young to drive and later too concerned for my personal safety -- I never hitchhiked or picked up a hitchhiker.

Nowadays a thumbs up is a symbol of positivity as well as a popular emoji.

My gallery today is titled:

👍Thumbs Up!👍

"Hitchin'a Ride" by Vanity Fare

A thumb goes up, a car goes by

It's nearly one A.M. and here am I
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home before the morning light

I got no fare to ride a train

I'm nearly drowin' in the pouring rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Long distance call I got today

She sounded lonely so I'm on my way
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home, to keep her satisfied

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

A thumb goes up, a car goes by

Oh, won't somebody stop and help a guy?
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Been away too long from my baby's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride

Ride, ride
Ride, ride.

All of my edits were done using this original photo shown below. There's nothing terribly exciting about it in its regular format.

Which ones are your favorites?

Please let me warn you in advance that once you start doing these types of artistic edits it's wonderfully addictive and hard to stop! I always get lost on the time while doing photo edits!

I hope everyone is staying safe and keeping healthy while continuing to practice social distancing during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The good news is that self isolating appears to be helping flatten the curve!
