Memories of Varanasi


Memories of Varanasi is a card I created for a Travel exchange on the Wet Canvas site, it is a digital collage of about 20 or so layers using almost all personal photos from around the holy city of Varanasi on the holy river Ganges, which my husband and I visited in the 1980"s, long ago and far away.

Most of the incredibly carved buildings built during that time of the Moghul rule still stand.

TITLE:   Memories of Varanasi

CHALLENGE:  Architecture challenge from The Three Muses weekly digital challenge site.

The flower seller was on  the very first transfer image I ever made, and only the second ATC I traded. He fronted a card I called BEAUTY-found on my sidebar, here - as I found and still find him a sublime representative of it...and Grace..
