Rock, Paper Scissors is one of those things that have always fascinated me, but until I looked it up just now, I didn’t realise how truly old it is: the first mention dates back to the time of the Chinese Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). This is my interpretation of the game.

Created with my own photographs in Photoshop, no stock used.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
