Rivers of Time

Here's the latest addition to my "Time" series. As per usual, I have a few variations on this theme and may not yet be done with playing around with the options.

Laura Jean

I'm going to have a few pieces in a gallery booth at the local Gardenscapes show later this month, so I decided it was time to work on an idea I've had for a while. I have a lot of nice flower and garden shots, but I'm never happy just leaving images as shot. Seems kind of boring. So I've been trolling the public domain sites for photos of Victorian and Edwardian women to merge with my garden shots. I've got about a half dozen done now, and as usual, for every one I complete ideas for a dozen more come to me. It's pretty much an endless regression.

This shot features Laura Jean Libby and a nice vine-covered wall I shot last fall. It feels almost Steampunk to me--another direction I need to explore.

Time Flies

This is an image that I generated a while ago, but I had it in non-standard proportions for some reason. I try to go with "industry standard" proportions for my photo-based images as it makes life much easier when it comes to printing, matting and framing. I spent most of a morning last week reworking it to the new proportions and generally fine-tuning, and I like the new version better than the original. 

I never remember to mention this, but all images on this blog (or on my main website can be ordered as prints in various sizes. Check the pricing area on the website for details.
