One Love

May 3, 2015


This started off with a base image of a blue iris which morphed into the final image above with an overlay of pink geranium flowers. As I’d had the theme of music with the tribute to Ben E King in my previous post, I thought I’d continue with “One Love” by that great artist, Bob […]

The music is brilliant but the images portrayed – of the beauty of the earth juxtaposed […]
