Artist's Description

I thought it was about time to do a collab under my own initiative for once… and what better way to break the ice than to collaborate with the amazingly talented Tracey Mac and her awesomely feline companion Ash!

The background is from a shot I’d taken on infra red film and scanned to digital, the trees manipulated to form the heart and the birds were added from another shot in my pf. I used a blur layer with 50% opacity to compensate for the heavy grain of the film and soften the overall image.

Tracie and Ashy were gorgeously played by themselves and I left it to them to find a suitable lyric. Which was a good call cause when I played it I was totally blown away by how well it suited the vibe of the image…

Return to Innocence

Love – Devotion
Feeling – Emotion

Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence

If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny

Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance
To return to innocence

That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence

Enigma

Massive thanks to you Tracie for the infinite inspiration… and Ashy? You be good and come in when yer told!
