This edit is called Gaia Trinity because first of all, there are three of us in this photo. The second reason is because I put planetary life components as powers on all three of us. Basically, Gaia means Earth, and our planet is made up of lots of plants and water. I met two new friends who hail from Long Island not too long ago, and their energy is as high as my own (if not, higher). I enjoyed hanging out with them, and learned that they love flowers/nature. I first met Ahmer (left), who I knew for three years in the form of instagram. I honestly forgot how he found me or vice versa, but the next thing I knew, we were following each other. We hung out at the beach, and took photos since it was too cold to go for s swim. Afterwards we ate and met up with Lucia (right), one of his friends and went to the mall. After that we ended up at her place and just enjoyed each other’s presence, played music and laughed together. At some point Ahmer took photos of both me and Lucia, and Lucia took a photo of him. He sent me the collage he made later that night after we all parted ways, and I got inspired to add powers to us once he said “We all look like super heroes about to fuck shit up”. I asked what powers they wanted since I didn’t want to go ahead and add what I felt looked good with the images. Ahmer was like “For me anything with flowers works”, and for Lucia, he said “whatever you feel she gave off…like something with flowers”, which made me giggle because of how obvious the answer was. I didn’t want to make it a flower edit any old person would do, and most of the transparent images of flowers I found didn’t go well with their photos, due to how the image was positioned. I can rotate and flip, but I can’t diagonally change it…yet. So I downloaded some transparent images of rose petals, since Ahmer’s favorite plant is a rose, and a lighter pink batch of petals, since I remember hearing Lucia saying she loves the pink ones. I also went ahead and added plant colored lights to make it look like they’re emitting a “natural” aura (get it?). As for me, I added my usual water power, since at this point it’s my “signature ability”. I didn’t like how I looked before since flash doesn’t flatter me, so I made it less ugly by healing some of the shine spots off my face.
