Artist Creates Digital Manipulations Inspired By Popular Idioms

I bet you will never think about these popular idioms the same way again.

Tara Lesher graduated from college with a degree in education, but she is now living her passion as a creative photographer. Her specialty is children’s creative portraits.

Since most kids tend to take words literally, it inspired Tara to create these amazing digital manipulations. Her new series, called “Idioms,” is all about putting an image in our minds whenever we say or hear these popular idioms. Check out her work.

Used when someone watches too much television.
