This week’s daily post photo challenge has Iinspired me to think of a favourite album and to create my own cover art. My choice of album is Enya’s ‘The memory of trees’. If you don’t know it I can thoroughly recommend Enya’s effortlessly relaxing music. I often play ‘The Memory of trees’ when I’m practising daily yoga, meditating, writing or just enjoying relaxing. I enhanced my shot with ‘Pics art’ editing tools to hopefully give that dreamy quality and remind me of autumn. I hope you like it. Below is the link to many more entries.
I posted this on The legion of door whores site. One beautiful day I came across this beautiful tranquil house, a retreat and home of ‘Barefoot Therapies’. I loved the blue door, the Buddha and the wind chimes lulling me into that peaceful place.
Sinking in silt and shingle;
Seeping salty tales
Of billowing sails
On crescendo gales.
Breached and reached
Tales of whales
Droplets of light, majestically falling at the entrance to the V&A Museum in London. I was wondering when I was going to use this photo and Sonel’s challenge ‘droplets’ proved the ideal opportunity. The first one is my original, cropped in Snapseed and the second has a vintage tint and border to complement the period of the building. I can easily spend a whole day at the V&A, taking photographs, drawing and eating! Enjoy
Inspired by Sonel’s Corner photo-editing challenge ,vintage’, I chose to photograph a beautiful vintage,silk gypsy shawl given to me by my mother many years’ ago. We share a love of antiques and vintage items,anything unusual. I love old powder compacts and jewellery.
The cropped photos were edited with Snapseed.
Top left photo was edited with a grunge filter. I liked the different texture of the fabric looking almost like denim. The second is the original.
Bottom left photo is the original and next to it I edited with a vintage style layer.
The above photo of my coveted vintage shawl was edited with the Picsart app. I used a vintage border to enhance the feeling of age. I like to wonder who used to own this shawl. Maybe I’ll build a story around it. Maybe you could too…I hope you enjoy it anyway.
Victoria’s dictionary of flowers suggests that orange roses represent ‘fascination’. Do you feel that the shawl’s designer meant people to be fascinated by whoever is wearing the shawl?
