To live in hope by Maree Cardinale

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

She lives in hope… of salvation, of redemption. She also lives in the now and remembers to smell the flowers.
She is a realistic optimist. :)

A blend of three of my own images. Photo manipulation.
Processed in PS CS5.1

You never know when some of your old images may come in handy, so just for those interested, here is some extra info.

Face – Sony DSC-V1 – 2006
Cross – Canon PowerShot SX10 IS – 2009
Flowers – Canon PowerShot SX10 IS – 2011

Obsessed with riding the learning curve.
Having a blast.
Thanks for stopping by.

    This is hauntingly beautiful my dear Maree!!! I can’t stop looking at this beautiful creation ♥

  • Thanks Heather, in some part you inspired me… when I was looking for images to use and came across the one of me I thought hmmmm I can halve this, flip it and join so it’s perfectly symmetrical… I wouldn’t have thought to try that if I hadn’t seen you do it so well. :))
    Thank you xoxoxox
    PS I’m really glad you like it.
