“You don’t have to be a ‘person of influence’ to be influential.
In fact, the most influential people in my life
are probably not even aware of the things they’ve taught me.”
As citizens of this cyberworld, we release our words and images, in bits and pixels, outward into the ether, perhaps never knowing the positive impact we may have upon others. We may feel the work we do is tiny and small – yet the shadow we cast is often much larger than we can imagine.
We share little pieces of ourselves and the way we see the world. And we hope to make a connection – no matter how slender – with others who do the same.
Today it is this creative community to which I pay tribute. For all the things you have taught me through your example – your struggles and your triumphs. For your support and encouragement and enthusiasm for my work – I can’t tell you how much your feedback means to me.
It is a kind of love, this connection we share. Our love of photography; for capturing beauty and amazement within the frame – and for sharing that love, here in these spaces.
Texture Tuesday Processing (Photoshop CC)
- Process my mid-tone contrast action to bring out the texture of the brickwork
- Add the Stained Linen texture, blend mode = Multiply
- Add a Layers Adjustment to increase overall contrast, especially in the highlights
Below are the original image and the Photoshop layers palette:
