Red Blur

Today we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Poland's first post-war democratic elections in 1989.

I have made the blured version of Polish Election Poster, Solidarność (Solidarity).
In 1989, posters featuring Gary Cooper 's image from "High Noon" - with the Solidarity logo above his sheriff's badge - were displayed around the whole country.

On June 4, 1989, we went to vote and this delivered a sweeping victory to Solidarity and a blow to Poland's communist regime.

This weeks' TITC subject - "Blur and colour". For more fuzzy colors see the forum http://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=41414&sid=e2d7a2cf88c0da79b1cb7f861d0db979

Great image! Can't go wrong with "Coop", this was such big news here in the USA back then. Are their many in Poland who miss the communist regime?
