I am a very visual person. I used to diligently cut, categorize, and save magazine images that struck my fancy. This led to surreal collages out of high school, which I no longer do. (Though I really don’t know why–it is very fun and therapeutic to jumble different pictures together into one image.) This is one that I started many years ago and just rediscovered. The base photo is a NatGeo shot of a nesting booby (?) with a cut-out of a diving beauty cut and pasted as if she were taking a leap from the bird’s beak. [Note that this was done the old fashioned way with scissors rather than fancy schmancy Photoshop.] I still don’t think it is done, but for now it sits above my drafting table to inspire me to just jump in!
