To say that I love books and love to read is an understatement. The worlds I get to live in … the dreams I build there … the memories they revive … are gifts that reach across time from authors I’ll never know but whom I love with all my heart. This little image is an homage to those who came before us, who lived and loved and left traces of themselves between the pages of a book.
Original image taken with the D40x, using the 18-135mm Nikon lens and tripod. Shutter speed 1, aperture f/18, exposure -.33, iso 400. Rosalie Dale’s Vintage Technique started the process, then several layers of texture were added, thanks to the inventory of CGTextures.com. Several different blending techniques were used.
