The Ties That Bind

by Zi O

I visited my parents this weekend-I just happened to take my camera as this is my new policy have camera will travel-just in case I see something I want to snap. Well as I was driving I came upon an old abandoned farm house that reminded me of the one my grandparents lived in during the first years of their marriage as Gran-dad was a farmer. There was just something about this imaged that drew me in-this lonely vision housed in the midst of a stripped cotton field, so I snapped it. When I got home I tried to think of some way to use the images and this is what I came up with after photo manipulation of various means, one being adding four photos to create one. In the foreground is an old photo of my grandparents with their first of 8 children.

    We're in agreement! Not on the choice between the two. They're both great, but, on the personal level. Thx for stopping by!

    Margaret, thank you very much-I think I prefer this one too....{I think?} but then creating especially when it speaks on a personal level is always a plus for me regardless of the outcome. *S*

    Beautiful! I love this one with the color added to the sky. Can really feel the sentiment. 5*
