    Day 3 - Deep

    Playing around with a few ideas & phrases on this
    Deep Purple (obvious), then Deep Space (my personal preference)

    Took some photos of a purple flower and kicked off.

    To quote Homer Simpson - Trying is the first step towards failure.

    So here we have

    Deep Purple Cosmic Twirly Warp

    Got really lucky today to stumble onto unusual wooden sculpture. Molested it in PP quite a bit and came up with STUCK TOGETHER:

    This little doll from 1905 was made from a shoe, but I'm guessing the little girl who owned her would have loved her all the same.

    I guess the beauty really is in the eye of beholder. To me it is a beautiful effort of somebody to give something to someone which otherwise probably could never be afforded. Much more valuable and, yes, more beautiful, than any Barbie or Bratz doll.

    She could have been. But she has her own story already. A cartoon on youtube, click here to see.

    That is the most beautiful doll I've ever seen......easily. And I'll bet it's worth a considerable sum of money.

    Ugly ear of corn, in an otherwise beautiful field of corn. But the BUGS seem to think it's nice! :smile:

    I originally shot this one for mostly montone for all the shades of green, but Oscar looks like he is just zoning out looking out the front door so I'll use this one for Meditative....just minutes earlier, he was "hunting" fish in the aquarium, by slapping at the glass. Thanks to Color Efex for allowing me to pull detail out of the blownout outdoors and the deep shadows in the aquarium.
