Welcome to Haiga Heaven Weekly Challenge!
Regular visitors know, I love Haigas.
Traditionally, Japanese Haigas are a complimentary combination of a haiku and simple painting. Modern Haiga writers embrace a range of visual media including photography and graphics.
Join me, having fun, creating new Haigas, using your favourite medium.
If you want to join in, you’ll find a new prompt to inspire your Haiga every Sunday. Add a link in the comments box to share your Haiga.
I look forward to seeing your take on this week prompt – Betwixt.
long forgotten crevices
the evidence lies.
Intriguing, Marie. I guess I’ve always been posting a haiga and never new it until now. 🙂
Hi Marie. My first time here. I don’t know if the haiku is suppose to be on the photo. If so I don’t know how to do that. If you would be kind enough to send me a link giving instructions so I can practise. Thanks! Here’s my offering for ‘Betwixt’. https://odaciuk.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/unfolding/
Great response. Thanks for taking part.
I don’t have a link to instructions but I’m sure you could Google it. I use photoshop and a scrapbooking programme. Both let you add text in a new layer. I think most photography programmes have a similar feature.
I don’t do Photoshop, just a bit of internal editing. I’m a dinosaur with new technology. Oh well! Thanks anyways for the response.

Thanks for joining in. 😄
Hi Marie. Me again. I found a photo editor that was user friendly and after much fiddling, created haiku on top of photo. Here’s my edited post. https://odaciuk.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/unfolding/
Great work! What software did you find? Does it let you move the text once you have added it? I wonder what it would look like with the text a little more to the right in the black area?
Here’s the link I used, Marie. https://www.befunky.com/features/text-editor/
For a first attempt, I felt what I got was ok. As you mentioned some of the lettering blurred into the background clouds and might have had a better effect on the totally black area. I don’t think you can move the text once it’s done. You’d have to delete it and try again. I think? Need to play with it a bit more. Thanks, Marie.
Thanks for the link.
I went back and tried again. Yes, I could move the text. Silly me. If you want to take a peek at the edited post, I think it looks better, but it’s in a grey box this time. Oh well! Your review inspired me to try again. Thanks, Marie.
