Having been up for part of the night,
I eventually got up to make myself a second coffee pot,
just in time to see dawn making its appearance.
A red dawn!!
You see here the original picture.
I obviously enhanced it a bit...
As the morning light evolved outside into a whitish canvas,
my picture evolved as well,
making various versions.
I started adding textures,
just to experiment.
I was then reminded of those old illustrations of tales of war,
and how soldiers would stand guards on top of towers and ramparts,
watching out for possible enemies.
We may have turned the page on History,
but who's watching now?!?
