Larger Photos Part 3

Sometimes I find that a photo works really well as the background of my page, allowing one to get a feeling of the surrounding area.  That is the case with this page showing the scene from our balcony (which you can see in the upper right hand corner).  Note that for the journaling, I took a portion of the picture and lighted it a great deal before adding the text to it.

We went for a walk in this Koala Sanctuary near Brisbane.  Though we didn't see any koalas, we saw plenty of signs that they'd been there.  By using one of the pictures as the background, you can see the type of vegetation in the sanctuary, while the other photos show close-ups of things we saw there.

Here's another example of how a background photo sets the stage for the closeup.
