A manipulation using a photo of an abandoned house and the milky way

The shooting star that destroyed us

Sat down tonight with some nostalgic tunes from my high school days (think Senses Fail, Finch, and more). Thought about all the fun I used to have jamming out until the sun came up, creating image manipulations and digital paintings.

For old time sake, I whipped up this image—a photograph I took of an abandoned farmhouse in Westport, Massachusetts mixed with a photograph of the milky way galaxy, blended with some unexpected color inspired by some infrared photography I’ve shot.

Feels good to clear the mind and experiment. Enjoy!

One of my favorite local places to visit is Buzzards Bay Brewing in Westport, Massachusetts. An old farm converted into a brewery. In the summer, the front of the farm is lively and bustling. Come winter, the crowds die down and a few die hard communitarians remain. In this case, not many people were around to witness the majesty of the light display the folks … Continue reading Tree of Light
