  1. It’s an odd feeling isn’t it- I sense it as a deep longing, it stirs an imagined memory! Perhaps a ghost of someone else’s memory that briefly touches the amygdala when our third eye is awake! – I love your image

  2. Beautiful photo! The Welsh have a word, “Hiraeth”. I found this on Tumblr…”Hiraeth, a homesickness for a home for which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past.” It struck a chord with me…

    1. How wonderful. I will copy your reply and may well use it in another post. Thanks so much for following up on this. I looked on Google but couldn ‘t find anything. I did learn that a lot of people experience this feeling though.

    1. Now that’s a good question :). Lets see if I can remember. In Photoshop I converted image to B&W using sliders. I then created several Adjustment layers used Curves (B&W, Red, and Blue filters) until I got the effect I wanted. I then flattened the image and added Noise. – At least that’s what I remember. I think I adjusted the Levels at the end.

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
