Witness To Sorrow by NooYawkGurrl Witness To Sorrow by NooYawkGurrl
Full title to this work is actually "Witness To Sorrow And Destruction"

This image seems to speak to many people… it certainly does to me. What I am trying to depict here is how the violence of this world steals the innocence of children and forever taints the sanctity of all things sacred. We live in a sick, twisted, heartbreaking world at times and it saddens me immensely. I try not to let it overwhelm me… but that is difficult when you are a human being with emotions and feelings. No wonder we all need psychological defenses…

This photomanipulation was done as my first entry for a new contest club here on Deviant Art called “Manipulate This”
I chose Challenge Number Three using the stock photos provided:
1) [link] by
2) [link] from sxc.hu

All work done entirely in Photoshop 7.0

"100 REASONS" CHALLENGE theme: 28) SORROW

Very beautiful and emotional piece.

I thought this was a good image to use at this terrible time when so much of the world is in great need of prayer, especially Japan.

This is weird. That posted on the journal page too. It's evidently logging on both places, just to let you know why I responded to myself here. I wrote it under my journal. Now I wonder if this is also going to show up over on my site?
