*"Said the Kangaroo,’I’m ready!
All in the moonlight pale;
But to balance me well, dear Duck, sit steady!
And quite at the end of my tail!’
So away they went with a hop and a bound,
And they hopped the whole world three times round;
And who so happy, — O who,
As the duck and the Kangaroo?

- Edward Lear"*

Photograph taken at Hepburn Springs, Victoria, Australia with a Panasonic FZ20, edited and layered with textures from my own photo stock 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.

  • Hello my dear friend! The texture layer altered the colour a little so the colours aren’t quite true :)I also edited out the moon, it was too distracting! Thank you Anna, I am so very grateful for your support and wonderful comments :) xx
