I saw this photo in a 1950 Chris Craft catalog and thought. Mmm that’s a cute woman. Okay, wait, honestly and sadly, I liked the hat first and then noticed her. Yes, maybe it’s my age, or a BW art photo thing, or maybe on some level it was the torpedo bra. But no, it’s more subtle than that. See it yet? No? You think that flag mast is just there? Subliminal? Mmmm? Really, with retouching and all that’s possible, that mast is there and it’s on purpose. And you start looking around, And mmmm, there are sure a lot of tube shaped things in old photos. Hey! Again, I did not take these or draw them.
But I can tell you as an Art Director in Advertising for 36 years, EVERYTHING in a reproduced photo is thought through. EVERYTHING! So, there ya have it. There is even an old book on the topic. Yeah, its kinda nuts, but there is some truth to it all.
Yes. men bought boats, and they bought them thinking that to they attract women, or impress their wives. But, even if you have been married for years with a station wagon full of snot nose brats wanting a Stuckys Pecan log.
Well, you can at least dream of that boat babe, and your large mast. Hey! Once again, I am just reporting on this, you’re brain see’s it on an unconscious level.
