Digital Collage - Street meets Country



I have been playing with Photo Shop all morning. It was 107 degrees at 9:30 this morning on the shady side of my house. I figure the thermometer is off by about 5 degrees - so maybe 102. It takes your breath away when you walk outside. So everything I was going to do this morning I decided not to do. Maybe this evening I can get some of those things done when it cools down.

Meanwhile I am going to do all the stuff I hate to do inside and reward myself with a little art. I started with this digital collage. The boy is a street urchin from London taken around 1848. The barn is one of mine as is the ledger paper, and the typewriter keys came from flickr.
