Challenge No. 44 - Debbe's Pick: PAIN

Pain: ache, affliction, agony, anguish, despondency, discomfort, distress, grief, heartache, hurt, illness, martydom, misery, sadness, shock, strain, suffering, torment, torture, wretchedness.

Take your pick. We all have pain, we all have sorrow. But, without pain to hollow your heart, there would be no room for joy. This I believe.

Vintage photo from my collection, duplicated and resized a few times. While this is not a selfie, I have used this same photo in other work to represent me.

Texture "In The Dark" from my Textures to Share set
A fill layer of e4e5d7 set to soft light and opacity adjusted for more light in the image.
An amazing texture from Mariana Armata: Mirror of a Rainy Day: www.flickr.com/photos/marianna_armata/6894353722/in/photo... Without her generosity in sharing her work, this image would not be what it is.

Tammy Wilson (T.Wilson Photography), and 35 other people added this photo to their favorites.
