A photo-digital mixed -media montage.

One of my early works combining graphics, etchings, watercolour paintings, with in-camera photography.

The title refers to the Leonid meteor shower which occurs each December. The polar rotational long-exposure at the upper center of the montage shows a few meteor trails during a really cold long night of shooting shooting stars.

The cracked-face baby doll is a straight photo, along with a graphic of an optical device set against a watercolour on paper painting.
