Summer's Day by harmonious-madness Summer's Day by harmonious-madness
Stretching through heat's haze
Your eyes closed and content, these
Lazy summer days


That was my attempt at a haiku. I'm so proud of myself, AHAHA this is the first manip that took me less than a week, I did this all in a few hours. And I'm still counting!...This my 5th ever photomanipulation :lmao: Anyway. This is for *Deepsil3nc3's summer contest [link] and also my entry for this week's

There's just something about it, like... after the first two lines I have the feel of an intro, but then it stops like a shutting door, and I'm stuck here thinking about what just happened.

Hm, I didn't realise that at first, but now that you've mentioned it, you're right. But this was just really a few words to add a text element to the image, which was why I only wrote a haiku instead of something I really put thought into.

WAUGH this is gorgeous :love:

My only criticism: the girl's hair sticks out from the rest of the textures like a sore thumb. That's it though.

Lovely, it makes me want summer back. :crying:

Oh winter sucks too, I've a permanent cold. So I've worked out that I spend half my life - Winter and Spring - with my nose blocked.
