The photograph came first, and then the sketch rendition.

And then the words. I was looking around for quotes and didn’t find one, but this idea seemed satisfying.

    A line from a [Swedish] song came up in my mind; «I know what it feels like … when bridges to security are burned».

    I’ve burnt a few, but it never comes out well when you translate like that …

    1. Ah yes, that sounds like leaving ‘safe harbours’ behind. In this modern world, the definition of security is problematic. In days of old it might be a close-knit community, or family, or religion.

      What is it today, eh?

        I’ve thought of that a lot, the last few days. I have no answer.

        ‘Safe harbours’ was what I meant 🙂

    1. Ah, would that it were so. It is an app that turns photos into sketches.

      Or to put it another way, it turns them into something that I can wish that I could have sketched 😉

      1. That’s funny, and still clever. If you hadn’t told me I would still be thinking how wonderfully talented you are! I must investigate. What is the app?

        1. It’s called ‘FX Photo Studio’ It’s by a company called MacPhun, and as you might guess from that – it’s Mac only. It has a number of effects but I really only like a couple of them – sketch being one of them.
