    the Gate

    both a literal and metaphorical gate with some "light at the end" kind of expressed my mood for today... hope you enjoy it.

    Looks like some exotic land

    The colors make me thing of some exotic foreign entry into an open market.

    Feels like we're inside a cathedral with the sun behind us shining through a stained glass window. Very nice effect and a clever way to introduce color and dividing space. Good structure to the architecture that sort of works like a frame of sorts. Were I in such a place and seeing this, I would be dazzled by the colors first and then the architecture. And that's what I'm noticing first. It of course has a metaphoric tone to it that is very evocative of structure and culture and oldness and the reach out of the past into the present, permanence and the temporal, and tradition and aspirations and plateaus and containment, walls and bedazzlement and openings, directing the eye to a mysterious out. Don't think you've been twiddling your thumbs.

    Looking good.

    Where does this gate take? I love the combination of geometries and colors. It may well be an abstract as well!

    Thanks D Akey, I thought it was amazing that a simple photograph of a not very interesting building could be transformed into a wonderful metaphor given the right combination of color and texture... that is the fun and creative part of all this for me. looking at an image and imagining what it could be. Of course some photos are tremendous subjects and stories all on their own but others that might quickly be passed over can have great potential

    That caught my attention as well Caesar when I was scanning over my son's photographs I cropped his image and centered it and then went to work on the colors and textures.

    More beautiful colours - it must be thrilling to see them emerge as you apply your processes.
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.
