Haiku!

Today’s Daily Create had me outside enjoying nature.  It says poetry is an option. Between that and the photo subject I chose, I couldn’t stop thinking of a sketch by The Kids In The Hall.

How’d I make this?

After taking a dozen photos or so, I chose this one for the framing and the way the leaves lead you to the empty space.

Importing it into photoshop, I added the text of the haiku I wrote, then adjusted the font and added an outer glow to it.

To make it a gif with motion, I ‘saved as’ a different version with each line of text added, then uploaded these to Giphy. Of course, I had to do this three times because the file size was too large, but after paring it down I had it.
