Winter Morning

Winter Morning. David Hayes, 2013

A new year. New beginnings. New projects. A quiet morning, this January 1st. A foggy morning outside....as well as in my self. The clarity I had about the new year just last week has disappeared in light of new circumstances. Some good, some not so. Life.

My 2012 i365 project is over. It was a great project...learning much from it. My door-opener to new communities and new artists. I am so glad I did this project. So glad that it's over. Having to create a new image every day was a creative challenge...I didn't always feel that I posted my best. But post I did! Record of my journey. For those who followed along, thank you for your support and companionship. It was what kept me going!

I won't be posting everyday in 2013. I want to make sure that the images I share are truly reflective of my life at that moment. I also plan to share more of my thoughts with you as I go. A Book of Reflections. I hope you continue along with me.

Recipe for "Winter Morning". Start with Glaze. Apply it's "Orange #1" filter. Save this. Open Layover. Load your original image first, followed by the Glaze version. Oh...make sure you've set the aspect ratio to 4:3 (Standard) before you start. Blend using Hue. Use "Crop" to offset the original just a bit. To taste. Save and enjoy.
