This week I decided to play with Robyn’s suggestion from last week. She gave me the idea to bring together the black and white version from week 1 and the watercolor from week 2. Since I don’t use Photoshop and we all know Lightroom doesn’t have a layering feature I was rather skeptical that I would get a result that I liked.
I went with FotoSketecher, there is a merge effects feature that works quite well. I played with the three slider bars to get the effect I liked the most. It took a bit of tinkering but I am happy with the result.
The need to see beyond
The shore where dreams glisten
In the sun and waves look
Refreshing welcoming the higher your perch
You easily forget
About the work
It takes effort
Out into the bay of life
Pushing yourself away from
The known into the incoming tide
Head on the voice is clear
As it always is when it is time
You may need to rest before you even begin
In your heart for the journey
Ahead there is always a moment
Where time turns over
And you must
No matter the questions
They linger in all circumstances
It is time
To lose sight
Get down from your perch
Your feet are too
This past week I have had the remarkable opportunity to share poetry with Gin Getz. She asked me to share a poem a day for 10 days with her, just the two of us. So, we have challenged ourselves and alternate sharing a photograph to inspire a poem each day. I shared this photograph with her a couple of days ago, I thought I would share the poem it inspired as well.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions. Please be sure to visit Robyn at Captivate Me for the details of this challenge as well as to see Robyn’s work and the other players as well.
