Time in San Miguel

I combined a photo I took of a decorative iron scroll with a cracked and colorful wall and then added some Roman numerals. It's funny where ideas come from. I saw (or thought I saw) an illustration with Roman numerals all over it. Turns out they were letters, but the "Roman numerals" concept stuck. I made a note to begin including them into my photomontages and here's the first one. I cannot believe how much I love this stuff. ©Carol Leigh

Oil can #3

Yesterday I purchased a new (well, it's old) oil can -- my current obsession. Here I've combined it with gauze, an old ceiling tin, a wooden box, and cardboard. I then played with Channel Mixer in Photoshop and added some shadowing. Do I know what I'm doing? Um, no . . . But I'm finding incredible delight in my ignorance. Remember when you were a child and everything was possible and time stood still? This be that. ©Carol Leigh

Snowy Tree

On my walk around the block this morning I photographed the bare branches of a birch tree against the sky, knowing that I would use it sometime in a photomontage. I didn't expect to be using it so soon! This is a combination of four different photographs taken along the coast, here in my neighorhood, and in Mexico. This has been a really, really good morning. ©Carol Leigh
