19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Caught Between Two Hemispheres

I am an amateur iphone photographer and took nearly 5000 photos on my first international trip since Covid. While in quarantine I taught myself nearly 300 iphone apps and applying them to my new photos. This is a self portrait done in Egypt last week in West Aswan at Philea. I played with my profile as if it was the bad relief of the original stelae. I used an app in PicsArt to make it merge more with the surrounding stone and took another image from my trip to enhance the background. All of this was created on my iPhone or iPad with no Photoshop.
