The photographic elements are the map and the raven, to which various filters, color adjustments, and type were added in different layers.  The bamboo wall is a custom pattern fill.

Here’s the same bougainvillea trellis.  I did not adjust color hue or saturation.  This appears as vibrant as real life.



Manipulated Photograph

Lori Gloyd (c) 2007


This photograph is of an outdoor seating area at my local coffeehouse. It is adjacent to a supermarket parking lot. In Photoshop I airbrushed out some cars and a shopping basket. Then I created a second layer to which I applied a filter called “underpainting” which I reduced to a 50% opacity. Then I merged the layers and applied various artistic brush filters and noise filters until I acheived a “painted” effect.



She Wolf brought a monster home to Riverleigh.

She claimed he followed her.

I think he knew how to make the best of himself


as he has promised to be

an exceptionally well behaved

if somewhat slimy

little monster

I have found a pool just a few feet from the Gazebo

under the big chestnut tree

and invited him to stay

provided, of course, that his mistress looks after him

and does not expect me to find his food. Fran
