14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
"Inspiration" - digital composite.

TITLE: "Inspiration" DESCRIPTION: A digital composite image that I created in Photoshop using my pictures of hummingbirds, fiddle, stars and the moon. I call this image “Inspiration” because music, birds and the cosmos are three things that keep me inspired in life. I read that hummingbirds symbolize joy, lightness of being and optimism, so I had the idea to have them flying in and around my fiddle, as if playfully evoking the musical muse in the instrument. The background with the stars and moon represents the connection between music and the cosmos.
