Carry Me Back

Dreaming of "Yesterday's" tranquility and security...is that really so hard to attain?
Lovely

Beautiful and poignant. You have me singing the Beatles song now:
Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away
Now they look as if they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday........

Love the painterly look of this lovely image...It's hard to attain through smoke and mirrors. I yearn for yesterday too, Louise.

@seattlite We're clearly on the same page, Gloria. I've got many friends up in your corner, and I worry for them terribly...for all of us...

@casablanca You always remain so upbeat... Thank you for that...should be humming "Tomorrow"..."you're only a day away..."
August 1st, 2020  
@casablanca I started humming it too
a very poignant image Loiuse @Weezilou

Love this impressionistic look.

I highly suggest a cross country motorcycle trip to readjust your perception. ;-). It's worked wonders for me. And you have evidently somehow transformed into Claude Monet!

Nicely edited!!
August 1st, 2020  
Beautiful editing of this lovely image, Louise. I agree. Let's do a rewind of 2020!

@stray_shooter check out the date on the photo... you were there! Recognize the location? Welcome home! (I want to hear all about it! It sounds as though you have some stories to share 😉 and you always tell them so well)
August 1st, 2020  
@Weezilou OK, I'm gonna guess Olvera Street? Stories? Oh, yeah, I've got a few. Check out the Motorcycle Adventure series and you'll be able to read about and see some of the interesting events that took place on the trip.

@Weezilou Now that's a thought! Orphan Annie lives again!

@stray_shooter you made the introduction to Tres Rios... idyllic, isn't it?! I'll sit tomorrow to read w purpose your Tales from the Road...
August 1st, 2020  
@Weezilou Oddly enough I was just down there last night! There were three wedding parties taking photos!
August 1st, 2020  
This is beautiful, I love your editing and I agree with casablanca, “Yesterday” is the perfect song for these times.

@louannwarren With this new oil-paint action, I pulled up photos from this one location, taken about 6 years ago... It has a quiet, "yesterday vibe" on the roads in the village, so I'm going with that, as I feel like it... Thanks so much!

@stray_shooter And also "oddly enough" two of my favorite people in Italy wrote yesterday, one couple having gotten engaged, and the other couple, married! People must be getting tired of putting their futures on hold!

@jamibann You're a brave soul, Issi! I say, "Trash it, and fast forward to a new year, new start!" It must be more peaceful there in the Scottish Highlands!

@aikiuser @365karly1 @joansmor Thank you all for having a look and leaving a comment. @summerfield I couldn't agree more about people just thinking of their neighbours, friends and family! Wear the mask! Thanks for the Aces...a more tedious action, but I'm loving the results!
August 2nd, 2020  
What a beautiful oil painting effect taking us back! I agree let’s stop 2020 and move on to better things!

I'm all for the trashing the rest of 2020 and moving on Louise. My state (Victoria) has been hit very hard by a second-wave of this wretched virus. We're not allowed to travel out of the state without a permit, lots of other restrictions too. About half an hour ago the Premier announced some very tough new restrictions (including a curfew) on Melbourne and suburbs. The rest of the state has amped-up restrictions too, but not yet as bad as Melbourne. Will it ever end???
August 2nd, 2020  
Love that canvas effect, how did you do that??
August 2nd, 2020  
@golftragic THAT, Marnie, was the easy part! My painting was finished, so I opened it in ON1 and under "textures" that come with the program, I just clicked on canvas. I'm quite sure in PS you could stack a canvas texture with the finished piece and do some magic, but I know where this one is, and I never had to go further!
August 2nd, 2020  
@golftragic Oh Marnie..."When will it end, indeed!" If we had a date...we could set our minds to that and wait it out. It's the unknown... California is on lockdown...my daughter cut my hair today...she lined everyone up, actually! She has no qualifications, but it looks better tonight that it often does for a hefty price! Ken goes out for groceries, and pick up orders in the parking lot from Home Depot. Our neighbour had his 75th birthday today, so we all took cupcakes and candies pecans to him..sang happy birthday and took photos for the occasion. Left 5 minutes later... I get into the doldrums now and then...it's all such a dud... Just don't get sick! We all need to do our part and hope it helps! Hugs to the two of you!

@Weezilou It is in many ways, Louise, I'm sure. But there are still many challenges. It's not an easy period for anyone. Stay strong!

My mom would have loved this with the lilacs. Looks like a Monet painting.
August 3rd, 2020  
Got `` Monet`` feelings.
