Images That Inspired Prose - 2

"True Hearts"
An EarthSmiles® card by Robert Burke at www.EarthSmiles.com, hosted by Zazzle.

The image that inspired the line, "Where one heart is true, others may follow."

From the Novel: "Your spirit came to the Earth to master the human experience. Because your spirit is connected to all other spirits, your mastery advances the evolutionary transition of all mankind. Where one heart is true, others may follow."

Images That Inspired Prose

"adobeDreams" (Zazzle poster)

The cover image of "adobeDreams." Captured a lifetime ago on 35mm Kodachrome with a Nikon F3 HP and 35mm f2 AIS Nikkor, then scanned to digital with grunge effects applied via software, this is one of my favorite images from Santa Fe.

The Zazzle poster is designed so that it appears protagonist Abigail Regan took the photo herself.

From the novel: "A steer skull hung beside the gate with a bundle of ristras, dried chiles, hanging from each horn. No sign identified the location, nor did she see a street number. It looked little different from any other door in an adobe wall found elsewhere in Santa Fe. She pulled the camera from her bag and took several photographs of the skull and ristras from various angles."
