January 1st marks the annual “World Day of Peace”, as first designated by the Catholic Church in 1968. Regardless of our religions or ideologies,¬†most all of us long for true peace in the world, and can hold this ideal together. The dove is recognized as a symbol of peace around the world, and for that reason, my featured image today is of a dove taking flight. I used a texture overlay as a stylistic tool to give the image a sense of mood. May we all experience peace in the New Year!
