Lately, I have been working on some new digital work using my photography. I love adding the definition of coordinating words, in a vintage typewritter font, to these works. The above photograph was actually taken in Montreal on my honeymoon...but with this affect...it looks like it could be an old chateau in France.
Joshua and I have both taken turns photographing this guy...and we love to call him "Contemplation." I prefer to use the definitions from our vintage dictionary. I find the choice of words to be much more eloquent than the modern ones.
The photograph above was taken last week at the Lilac Festival here in Rochester, NY. My sister and I took our mother for the day...and I spent hours photographing all the beautiful blooms (a seperate post about our trip to be coming soon!). I decided to edit this photo in Photoshop...give it my signature "glow" and added an old poem, I found, for my Mother's Day gift to my mom. I framed it for her in a white shabby chic frame.
"Your love is like an island
in life's ocean, vast and wide,
A peaceful quiet shelter
From the rain and wind and tide.
Above it like a beacon light
Shone faith and truth and prayer;
And through the changing scenes of life,
I find a haven there."
because no matter how old I get...I continue to find a haven in my mother's love!
All of the above prints are (or will be) available on my website...framed works will be available soon!
Till next time...
