Youth Hockey Player Vince Imitates Poster of Sidney Crosby

Life imitates art far more than art imitates life. —Oscar Wilde

The WordPress photo challenge for February 12, 2016, was to find inspiration in a piece of art, and go further: imitate it.

On February 13th I attended two hockey matches in Pittsburgh where my 11- almost 12-year-old grandson Vince played on the Tigers, a Cleveland Heights hockey team, I decided to find a print of a poster and see if I could find a picture I took at the event to match it.

I went online and found numerous poster-art possibilities. Then I began searching through my photos and to my surprise the answer was within my files. I’d taken a photo of a poster at the Airport Ice Arena (my daughter photo-bombed the picture I was taking of a friend) and had a photo of Vince that imitated it. Below is the result.
