Rose Abstract....

No, I'm not high or inebriated, but this image is the result of more experimenting, and probably some may view it and say, "Yup, the old guy has gone over the edge now". It is just me letting my imagination run wild...sort of reminds me of Cathy Jones of CBC's This Hour Has 22 Minutes, who used to end her monologues with "I'm just goofin' around, that's all". For quite a while, I felt like I had "hit the wall" creatively, and after much mulling it over, I realized that I was not having any fun with my photography anymore. So, starting this year, I've decided to have fun. Not too sure where this will take me, but we shall see. It is time to stop being so serious about it all, it is just pictures, right? At one time, capturing the perfect flower, or bird, or whatever, used to be the end goal. Now, for me, capturing the image of an object, is just the starting point. I have no preconceived ideas of what I intend to eventually do with it. That is the fun stuff....and hopefully now, it will be all about having fun....hope some of you enjoy it also.
Again, Happy 2018!!

"Rose Psychedelia" is how I would explain it. It's fun trying different effects in photoshop.You never know what effect is best suited to the shot. Yours works. I also like 'solarization'.
Happy New Year to you too!

Thanks John, Happy New Year to you and yours also. Sometimes I accidentally happen upon things when doing editing, and I am asked how did you do that. Fact is, I could not duplicate this effect if I wanted to...I have no idea how I got there, so it is a true "one of". Thanks for your comments. Please say Hi to the Photo Group for me. Dave
