“The tree was barren of leaves but you brought a new spring.
Long green sprouts, verdant flowers, fresh promise.
Mori, if I ever forget my profound gratitude to you,
Let me burn in hell forever.”

(The Lady Mori was a blind minstrel, and Ikkyu’s young mistress)

Reworking a photo taken last year with a Canon EOS 450D at Lavandula, near Daylesford in Central Victoria, layered with textures from my own stock photography and processed in Photoshop CS3.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
