REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Peaceful Breezeway

It's time for Photo Art Friday again, and Bonnie provided "Cobblestone Road" texture for our experimentation.  I've chosen an image of a breezeway that's open on one side to a little pocket garden on the small university located 20 miles from my home.  The garden has been placed between two buildings, with beautiful wooden entrance and exit doors.  I used three layers of the texture, each time choosing a different blending mode and opacity level.

This is fabulous, both space and editing and I love the colours.

Bonnie said...

How inviting! I always appreciate how you make the texture work for the image rather than overpowering the image. Just beautiful.

The light spilling from the windows seem to be illuminating the walkway. Very inviting and a lovely image.

What a lovely entranceway. I am always interested in these doorways to... new experiences?

Took a stroll back a few Photos. And just noticed is it your or Blogger that has autumn leaves falling in the post?

Thanks for the bright visuals on this grey day where the sun tried to come out, alas is hiding once again.
