This is a fun project I have wanted to do for some time. Its a silly one. I wanted to use the two "hillbillies hanging on umbrellas" ornaments that I bought a year ago as a present for a family member in a photomanipulation.

I took almost 20 photos of them. Then the painful process of removing the backgrounds of all of them. After that, I sat puzzled how to use them in a manipulation. I had a few ideas like jumping off a barn but I could not find a good barn build in SecondLife.

Then I thought "why not just have them blowing along with the wind and place a "hillbilly" suitable scenery as a backdrop - a backdrop where you might easily say to yourself "yup this family of cute hillbillies could easily have come from this place :) I knew the exact place that I have been to before in SecondLife to photo another scene which I created into a photomanip called "Morning Meadow Hunt". The Sim is called "GULF OF LUNE". I went back there and took a few backdrop scenes of a nearby backwater well-beaten fishing shack on this land.

Its not a perfect blending of the manipulation compenents but the intent is to create a light-hearted funny image where a deep backwater family of hillbillies use umbrellas and a good gusty stormy day to fly like their own little airline.

Hope it makes you smile :)

CREDITS & PERMISSION:

All textures used to manipulate & enhance the main SL virtual photo are my own private stock textures.

The photos of the little hillbillies are my own photo stock from ornaments in my home

The marshlands shack backdrop scene is my own photograph from the virtual world of SecondLife.

WOW - thanks everyone... you all are shocking me.  This work in less than one day has already gathered as many views as any of my most popular have taken and has already equaled the most number of fav's as my most popular works.

I guess there are a lot of Hillbilly lovers :)
