Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Another great challenge: Renewal. It certainly can be seen and expressed in many forms. This piece is from “The City Series” and is entitled “Across The River The City That Sleeps With Dreams.” Both the city and our dreams can be a starting point to or a departure point from when finding the path to renewal. In my own experience; one of past substance abuse and present recovery, the city and leaving it was the impetus for renewal. I found a new way to dream. I may never return to the big city life, for now living in a rural setting with mountains, have given me a new lease on life. Next up for the challenge of renewal are mountains.

    • Terry thanks. This image has always been a favorite of mine. I took the photo from an island on the Delaware River looking towards Philadelphia. In the piece I had began experimenting with the displacement map effect. One of my favorite effects. Peace brother.
