Okay, you KNOW I love a good quote! So combining photos and quotes in this challenge for Bonnie's Photo Art Friday - the hard part was stopping!
I used the same quote illustrated in a few different ways. Hope you'll enjoy my vision.
"The question is not what you look at, but what you see." Henry David Thoreau
This image from San Juan Capistrano illustrates how "what you look at" might be many things - the texture of an old building, the play of light, the reflection of a tree in the glass, or the addition of some subtle texture (Bonnie's Vellum texture at multiply 80%).
Finally, "what you see" might be something that evolves, created from several photos combined to make a new image, full of meaning or maybe whimsy.
I combined the following three photos, turned the building, reduced opacity on the San Juan Capistrano bells and did a little judicious erasing.
