A couple more from the photo collages I’ve been working on.

Hi, here is some more from Silent Friends, a psychological thriller I’m currently working on, dealing with a group of music students living in a country house and a tragedy that followed. At this point in the story, central character Gavin, a cellist, has just met one of the house people from twenty years ago and is struggling to cope.
Narrator = Gavin, Wife = Trudie, Daughter = Tamara, Figure from past = Philippa.
It’s late, past midnight. I haven’t told Trudie about Philippa yet. Trudie’s in bed half asleep, face turned away from mine. I get the impression she’s troubled about something, something unrelated to Tamara’s behaviour this afternoon. In past months, she’s hinted at a growing dissatisfaction with life, but she rarely talks about it.
Outside, waves splash against the cliff rocks. I hear the waves from our bedroom. They push into my thoughts and invade my dreams, growing in volume. I dream that huge crushing waves reach up to the top of the cliff, to the cottage, and wash Tamara and Trudie away.
Stil busy with manuscript preparations for my novel, but here are some more of the photo collages I’ve been working on. At some point soon, I hope to put a photoshoot album together and publish the thing online. I’ve been using the free photo editing software, Google’s Picasa. It’s excellent.
This cat wandered in to a cafe yesterday and climbed up to the window ledge, where s/he attempted to eat plant leaves. I took some shots on my camera and edited them using Picasa, then made a collage of the best photos.
