Latest work: "Kyoto Temple"

I made this photomontage using pictures I took primarily in Kyoto. I used the temple photo, photos of a couple of washi papers I was given in Kyoto, a photo of a weathered wall, photo of wooden boards with Japanese calligraphy (all from Kyoto) and then a photograph of a building I shot here in Newport, Oregon. I was pleasantly surprised at the way the combination of washi paper and everything else created a watercolor aspect to the entire scene. Nothing here was planned. I just begin adding things, taking things away, removing parts of things, until I see what I like. And here, I like what I see. ©Carol Leigh
