I don’t normally play with photo editing software other than to do some basic cropping and color correction, but every once in a while I’ll play because it enhances the vision a bit. In this instance, I have modified four pictures (three from the iPhone), all sharing the same theme, and though they again are not the best quality as far an actual photo goes, the content to me is very haunting and evocative. The first three are of my parents … all dealing with my dad’s journey into Alzheimer’s. The fourth is offered for contrast. It truly is the essence of regret to me.
