Interpretation: Image Manipulation

Challenge #50 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Who needs reality when you're a master of photo manipulation? Start with an image with a clear and obvious subject. Manipulate the surroundings to put that subject in an otherwise unrealistic location. For example, put a swimsuit clad sun-bather on a snowy mountain or a giraffe walking down main street. IMPORTANT: explain the manipulations (not the technique used, but what you have done to the image).

4 images blended together: 2 elderly men (from 2 separate imgs); img of a wheelbarrow blended three times; ocean view backdrop. Could have blended the objects a little better if I dedicated some more processing time but figured the humor of the scene makes up for any technicalities ;)
