Directions

Or how I found inspiration in a new iPhone photo app. Photofox is a composite editor for IOS and over Christmas break I combined two of my favorite images, one of my daughter looking up in the tub and the next a mossy covered set of concrete stairs. Both point to directions, steps of life that one moves through whether one is aware of them or not. There's something in here, with the rainbow swoop that shows to me the passage of time, for she will never be this young again, looking at it now, I see how her face has grown longer, and I've grown older too, the white hairs that sat in my lap when I got my haircut last week.

If photography is the necessary act of freezing time, what's the bittersweet knot in my chest I get when I look at this called?

Very interesting combination and the bittersweet knot in the chest is called "LOVE".
The picture reminds me of the famous double exposures by Lucien Clergue. thumbsup

Looks like the app does a very nice job. But most importantly I think the two pictures you combined were perfect for each other. It's one of those photos that causes one to be mesmerized by it.
