Take a Word: Wings


I've been looking for a way to use some beautiful photos taken by my son, Ryan Pollack, at the the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum in Austin, Texas. The museum is dedicated to the work of 20th century American sculptor Charles Umlauf. In this digital collage, the image of the woman's head is adapted from one of these photos. Other elements are from Holliewood Studios.
