mouseover for before imageThe original image is not mine, but it is most beautiful and I've been given permission to post it here since I did the enhancement.
It started when my new Flickr friend "Fernbrook," said his family had experienced a tender loss. He shared this with me even though we'd only "met" on Flickr because he liked what I had done with my Aspen Leaf with superimposed text and he'd hoped to create something similar in remembrance. He found he was having trouble coming up with the right words.
I began to ponder what words might be appropriate as I took my strolls. But, when he posted his already exquisite Phalaenopsis Orchid it all came together for me, so I offered this textured image as my gift to him and his family.
