Over the many years, I have visited Ft. Pulaski, I have amassed many photographs beginning with a SLR film camera, then evolving to a DSLR and now working with creative lenses such as the Lensbaby. This photo was taken with the original Lensbaby 2.0 . You can see that the point of focus is on the cannon while the left side of the photo has what we call "creative blur". The original photo below is somewhat flat and uninteresting.
The two textures below were combined into one to create the final image. While in Bruges, Belgium this past month, I photographed a document framed under glass at the beautiful City Hall there.
After editing the text photo, I combined it with Kim Klassen's newest texture, Mayzee.
