Originally I created this for a challenge on RedBubble, one that required layers in a photography or photomanipulation. I have mixed feelings about it, but what I do like is the idea of a little girl dreaming about being an athlete. 🙂 (This image is taken from three photographs I took: two at a kids’ soccer game and one of rain drops on a windshield (with a Steak and Shake’s and car lights shining through). They were edited in GIMP.
This Thanksgiving was magical, not just because I was surrounded by wonderful people, but because I spent it on my grandparents’ farm. It was cold, foggy, and rainy much of the time, but that seemed to add to its allure. I’d wanted to capture the wonderful contrasts in color this time of year, but the fog and lack of sunlight made it difficult. Instead, I tried to capture something of how the outdoors felt to me this weekend: full of subdued, subtle, and mysterious beauty.
