a fibrous person, hooked on photography

Archive for ‘May, 2012’

For this image I started with a photo of a monarch butterfly on a coneflower in my garden. On top of that I blended two different texture layers with the image to get that elusive point between reality and fading reality. Love the hit of blue, too!!


The original photo of the hot air balloon had a wonderful, pale blue sky. However I decided that since nothing about taking a hot air balloon ride is timid, with additional texture layering the image became bolder to live up to its subject matter. The texture is of cement with cracks…so I combined the two polar opposites into the title, “earth + sky”.
