How did we create the Buddha background for our blog and website?
This is a question we’ve been asked several times. What we
did was to take a photo I took of a window grating in a wat in Luang Prabang
(top photo) which I exposed for the sunlight on the grating which turned the
interior black (under exposed). There were a lot of cobwebs and dirt and in
Photoshop I "cleaned" up the image and then inverted it and put it on
it's own layer and lowered the opacity (bottom photo) and then we just tiled
the resulting image to create our wallpaper.
We think it's appropriate because we used our own photo and with Buddhism the main religion in Laos (over 60% of the population is Buddhist) we like to think Buddha would approve of the work we're doing. What do you think?
