where the sleeping old bears breathe, i can't see the light for the trees
i don't make any apologies for using photoshop with my photos, but these days it seems i don't manipulate my pictures so much. by that i mean whilst i'm happy to play around with colours and contrasts, i feel far less comfortable cloning out or adding elements. the only real exception has been my probably-too-small-to-call-a-series little planet series. a quick look at photos i've tagged with photoshop reveals that running man back in 2010 was the last time i'd really played around with photo manipulation. i don't think it was a concious decision to move away from that part of digital photography, but it seems that i did drift. then a few months ago i came across a swedish photographer/artist by the name of erik johansson and i was instantly inspired. he creates beautiful pictures, which are a mix of different shots blended seamlessly in photoshop with fantastically surreal results. i was already in the middle of processing this shot of valle de cocora when i came across erik's work and i immediately changed direction. i took a lot more time processing this than i normally do, but then again it doesn't look like any of my normal photos. in a good way. hopefully.

btw the title/text is a lyric taken from the sparklehorse song see the light - which i was listening to as i hiked around the park. here's the original
