Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol

hey folks,

In a break from what I have been doing recently I thought I would share a single shot with you today. This photo is a composite of a couple of my photo’s.  I shot Mary J Blige on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival last month and I kind of like the shot.  The problem is the background was very dull indeed.

Above the stage is a clock, its arms laid out to make the CND symbol and with the words “Peace Time” engraved around the edge.  I blended the two photographs together in Photoshop and added some vector art and a texture to make the background a little more interesting.

This is the result.  I don’t really see this as a finished piece, more an experiment and working piece.  I hope you like it.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
