Gorilla Love


Bonnie's photo art challenge this week is to create an art image using her texture 'Signed & Sealed'.  Yesterday my friend and I were at the Toronto Zoo and I got a great shot of a gorilla's hand.  My image today was simply a matter of adding four layers of Bonnie's texture, 3 using a soft light blend mode (100% opacity for all three) and the forth was added using a pin light blend mode at 73% opacity.  Simple but fun!

Thanks for the great texture Bonnie!

    1. Yes Sherry, the zoo trip was a great photo op. And I found myself especially fascinated with some of the hands, feet and eyes. You'll see more in the weeks to come...

    1. Thank you. Are you a football fan? I'm not usually, but living just outside of Toronto it's hard not to get caught up in the hype of the big game Sunday. Go ARGOS!!!
