Travel Memories transformed into Photo Paintings

One of the many things I love about travel photography is that when I look at a photo from a trip it brings back that exact moment to me in perfect clarity, the excitement of seeing something new and beautiful…aromas wafting through the air…the breeze caressing my skin…foreign sounds creating curiosity!  Here are some of my travel memories edited with software that take me back to that moment…
