“The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.”
― Maya Angelou
Life doesn’t come without restraint and so each of us longs for freedom from whatever we feel oppressed by. I created this image as a reminder that, whatever your situation, there is always hope and no one can take that away from you.
This image is composed of a shot of myself photographed in my garage, a wall in Venice, a bird from Stradbroke Island, a Graphic Stock shot of clouds, and a vine from a garden in Melbourne. It was created to illustrate how to create shadows with Photoshop which you can read about here.
