African flower

There are many colorful flowers on the path of life, but the prettiest have the sharpest thorns. — African Proverb

 

Experimental collage portrait of a South African girl.

Best viewed large. Attention: Big file. (8200 x 10612 pixels = 27.3" x 35.4" @ 300 ppi)

Alternately you can zoom in to the high res (87 megapixels) file with Microsoft ZoomIt.

 

Made with custom developed scripts, hacks and lots of love, using my Mac, Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and good African music.

Based on a photo by the talented South African photographer Luba Nel.
