Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

The original of this image was taken at the dress rehearsal for the Easter production at my church, New Springs International Christian Church, here in Loughborough. The man in this shot, Euan, was portraying John the Baptist as the Choir sang about him. And he did a fantastic job! The following are the lyrics to the song the Choir were singing, wriiten by Euan’s wife, Ellen, who wrote, produced and directed the show, The Writing in the Sand.

Born To Make A difference by Ellen Lockwood

Born to make a difference
He’ll prepare the way
“Thunder in the Desert”
John the Baptist is his name

He lives to preach repentance
And we’re turning from our sin
But he’s waiting for another
And then we will follow Him!

I’m not the Messiah (not the Messiah)
So don’t think I am (don’t think I am)
I’m here to make the way for the Son of Man
I am not worthy to untie His shoes
One day this man will die for me and you

Born to make a difference
He’ll prepare the way
“Thunder in the Desert”
John the Baptist is his name

He lives to preach repentance
And we’re turning from our sin
But he’s waiting for another
And then we will follow Him!

I’m not the Messiah (not the Messiah)
So don’t think I am (don’t think I am)
I’m here to make the way for the Son of Man
I am not worthy to untie His shoes
One day this man will die for me and you

And so we wait for Jesus
The Mighty King of Kings
There is no other like Him
And we will follow Him

And so we wait for Jesus
The Mighty King of Kings
There is no other like Him
And we will follow Him

This was converted to black and white and a layer was high passed. Texture layers were added to give the creased look and then the crack was placed over the image twice to bring it out. Toned in curves.

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! :)
