Most memorable skyscape of 2021 after an early summer storm.
I didn’t take many photos in 2021 (life happened…), but this cloud formation called to me and I’m so happy I took the shot.
Sometimes images have many lives
Drifting into the future
When curiosity brings them back to life
Creating a new world
For the original to inhabit
I spent many moments playing with editing old photos since my fresh supply was lacking due to mobility issues. Here I present the steps to the final result of one of my creations.
Step 1 – My peace lily from 2016 inspired the final image. I love to explore the alternate world of abstraction and investigate the interaction between shape, light and minimal color. I was very new to exploring the possibilities of photography at this point. Intrigued by the life of shadows.
Step 2– Isolating the shadow shape of interest.
Step 3– Beginning to play with the abstract possibilities of top, floral shadow.
Step 4– Final 2021 image of a starry, fantasy world.
