I’m posting this for the “E” Challenge by Frizztext (“E” is for Etegami).

Old tree & canyon —> Age —> Wisdom —> Patina (figurative) —> Increases value

The original photo used for this photomanipulation was taken at Dead Horse Point State Park in Southeastern Utah, USA, near Canyonlands National Park.  The discovermoab website states that “The view from Dead Horse Point is one of the most photographed scenic vistas in the world,” the panorama of the Colorado River Canyon.

Etegami 絵手紙 – Japanese word meaning picture letter/message, traditionally done in a postcard size meant to be mailed.

  2. Always Japanese art/culture impresses me… And now reading and watching your post fascinated me. Etegami seems so beautiful, and your haiku touches great. Thank you dear Fergie, with my love, nia

  3. I loved this post. In a novel, Salt Bear, I used Dead Horse Point as a central place in the story. Therefore I loved the manipulated photograph. Ethel and I liked the poem too.

  4. Your vision is so elegant and almost flurry. I always enjoy coming back to your blog. And I find it amazing that you can turn one of the most photographed scenic vistas in the world into something unique. You are the holder of artistic Etegami.
