Kaleidoscopes!


I love kaleidoscopes!  I actually have a very nice one that I bought years ago and I love sitting on the patio and pointing it at the bright sky and seeing all the changing patterns.  It must be my love of repeating patterns that draws me to these images.


I have a piece of editing software on an old laptop that I don't use any longer that makes gorgeous kaleidoscopes from just about any photograph.  That little tool is the only reason I keep that laptop around.  I haven't been able to duplicate that particular piece of software.


The top two photos were created from photos of flowers but, this last one is actually a set of patio table and chairs in yellow and blue.  It makes an interesting set of patterns.

Popcorn!


This was a creation for my Art Challenge Club several years ago.  It's still one of my favorites.

Reimagining Stonehenge


Last year I visited Stonehenge for the second time and I took a few of my photos from that day and applied some editing techniques to give them a new look.  The one above has a modern sketch look.


Some additions of blue gives this one a moody look and makes those clouds stand out.


This version has a bit of a painterly look to it.

Three Favorites


I've been terrible about posting my creations to this site.  I just realized it's been two years since I posted anything.  I'll try to do better.

This one above is of my favorite fountain in London with a little creative touches.


There is a little hidden garden/patio at the Heard Museum that is one of my favorite spots at the museum.  There are beautiful Alan Houser sculptures displayed against a red wall.  It makes for bold photos.  I manipulated this one a little to give it an artistic look.
