18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A heart on the ground.

I am an active person so I try to get out of the house as much as possible. One day these leafs and pieces of grass on the ground captured my interest. Back at home I tried different Photoshop effects and filters but didn’t like anything in particular. Finally I cut the image in half and flipped it vertically. What grabbed my attention was a shape it created. It looked like a butterfly or… a HEART! True love is something we all long for and dream of. No matter if we are in United States or across the globe.
