I created this image by taking a photo of an old, disused Petrol Station at Speers Point. I added a photo that I captured of Newcastle Beach one morning in early Summer and used Layers in Photoshop Elements 7 to construct the final piece.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Nice framing – wooden inner makes a very natural frame for this pretty coastline view

  • Thanks Shallay! I’d photographed that Garage a few years ago but not from this more straight-on angle that made a better frame.
