Grape Leaves/Ta Aμπέλια

A few grape leaves which never go to waste as they are used in the Greek food ‘dolmades’.

Λίγα φύλλα σταφυλιών που ποτέ δεν πάνε χαμένες, τις χρησιμοποιούνται στα ντολμαδάκια.

Leaves (digital collage photography)

The thing that I love about digital collages is that you can take a very boring picture of say .. leaves and make it more interesting and different.  All you have to do is make a collage background. My collage background is composed of bits of magazines images, and text from books.  I used tissue paper to add some texture in the collage. The collage is scanned on the computer and then layered with the image ( in my case the boring leaves) using any kind of photo shop programme. I use Paint.net for the layering because it is free and it doesn’t give me a headache. ; )
