Carob Memories


I created this from a photo I took of an abandoned carob store. The building was further along the coast, to the west from where we live in Alsancak, just outside the historic port of Kyrenia, in North Cyprus.  The light in the bottom window represents the wealth that people in Cyprus enjoyed from the carob crop, while the upper window represents memories of times past, as there are many of these abandoned stores along the shoreline.

The purple foliage represents the carob crop itself.  There are still many carob plantations around North Cyprus, and you often see the big carob pods hanging down after the flowering season.

For this image I used the gizmos on the BeFunky and PicMonkey photo editing programmes.
