This picture started out as something completely different and then took on a life of its own. I was heading down a different path when I thought of a song that suited this piece and so I added a couple more elements to finish it off.

Various layers and filters were used (high pass, rough pastels) and a mix of three images with two textures thrown in. All my own photographs and my wife were used.

Between You And Me by Marillion

Today! I saw music in the sky
I drove towards it in my car
And I turned left and I turned right
But I could never lose the light
That shines towards tomorrow night
Who can say what it means?
What goes on in between
And what gets in between
It’s just somethin’
Between you and me
Between you and me
Between you and me
It’s as sweet as can be.

Today! I saw music in the sky
It sang around me. I went blind.
Like a masterpiece in a disguise
Couldn’t stop it pulling at my eyes

Who can say what it means
What goes on in between
And what gets in between
Ice and fire
Between you and me
Between you and me
Sweet as can be
Between you and me

Monday.. Tuesday.. Blow a fuse day
Fix it in the usual way
Meet me at the church and we’ll get in a state
Stay up late and I’ll wake up feeling like
A kid swingin’ on heavens gate
With no God to complain
Or point the finger of blame
We’ll get it all down on video 8
You comin’ out to play?
Could be quite a day…

And I sang that pretty tune
An open airy song
And my heart looped the loop
Well I could do no wrong.

Who can say what it means?
What goes on in between
Who can say what you see
And what gets in between you and me

Between you and me
Sweet as can be
Between you and me.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
