7 Deadly Sins - Envy by am-y 7 Deadly Sins - Envy by am-y


The second deadly sin, envy is characterised by an insatiable desire or longing for what others possess. Jealousy is a common form of envy.


About this photo:

More postcards strewn about, with a message I penned on the back of one as the main subject and embodiment of "envy".

This is the 2nd photo in the "7 Deadly Sins" series.


More about this series:

Many thanks to Martin [link] for his earlier suggestion! :thumbsup: I wanted to create a photo-blend set based on a theme that wasn't too cliche, and settled on his idea eventually. I admit the "7 Deadly Sins" has been done to death, but I thought it would be interesting still to present my interpretation of it.

This entire set took two weeks to finish, with many breaks in between while I pondered what to photograph, what to blend each photo with, and which colours I should use. The process, though tedious, was however fun.

All photos were blended with stock from masterjinn [link] :heart:

Complete set:
#1 - [link] - PRIDE
#2 - [link] - ENVY
#3 - [link] - WRATH
#4 - [link] - SLOTH
#5 - [link] - GREED
#6 - [link] - GLUTTONY
#7 - [link] - LUST

The big guy planned for all of us...I think...:)'s hard to say, but just...errr...really not sure how exactly to face, endure or live with this kind of matter.

As more and more ppl are complaining this kind of problem, especially in China, some so jealous they would go out and rob the people who they think are rich, or carry something they want/like...:(

Sigh...and in one place, the police was so fed up, they shot anyone who dares to rob, and the crime rate soon dropped the nightfall...:)

Guang Zhou is one such unstable, unsafe, and messy place...:XD:

So as the whole China...:(
