It's not what you look at that matters ... by 

It’s not what you look at that matters … it’s what yu see. (Henry David Thoreau)

Aged Gerbera blended with a photo of rust, another of an old postcard, then subjected to hocus pocus in CS3.

I got rather carried away here – not sure whether the image was so obscure that it needed the text, or not! The ‘without’ version can be viewed below.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!
