Where’d that guy come from?

One of my musical heroes is the Godfather of Soul himself, Mr. James Brown. Being a colorful character given to dramatic poses, I thought he’d be perfect for this assignment. So I found this picture, which includes his hairdresser as a bonus:

So then I had to find a place to put them. I looked around for pictures of marches and parades, but nothing seemed right. Then I wondered: Who could be as funky as James Brown? Why, Julie Andrews, of course!

And she’s just begging for someone to hold her hands. The main problem I ran into was that the James Brown picture appears to have had some sharpening applied, while the Sound of Music picture is soft. The contrast was a little jarring. So I applied a little Gaussian blur, and voila! Get on the good foot!

    Wow! This works so ridiculously well it’s amazing. I appreciate the added blur to make the transition between the two photos more seamless. I’m trying to imagine what kind of fun you could have using this in a presentation.

  2. Really great mashup! That ‘hairdresser’ is none other than Al Sharpton. So this is Julie Andrews hanging with some mega political and musical soul.
