Filters can be a fun way to use images for a variety of projects.

These are all very mediocre shots I probably wouldn’t have used for anything in particular as shot, but re-purposed as illustrations, they look great.

Balboa Park, in San Diego California, not only has museums of art and photography, but they also have historic gardens with ancient and strange plants from many types of habitats from desert to tropical.

When you walk through this particular secluded forest, it looks and feels like you’ve been transported back to a Jurassic-like era.

June Moonshine 2012 Year of the Dragon

June MoonShine 2012, Year of the Dragon

I was enjoying the warmth of the sun on a cool June evening as it entered my home from the patio. I imagined it as a view of all the possible views; ocean, land and sky. There are a few hidden elements that I did not include intentionally. Under the stool is an iconic image of a dragon, 2012 being the year of the dragon.  Also, I did not notice the bright light emanating from the palm of my right hand until after I finished the project.  I am a LightWorker and I use my right hand for the active, hands-on work. The sunset and cloud were an image I took, then overlaid on to the image of the ocean and cliffs in the distance. I used 6 images to make this composit.

And then there is auto-art or bathroom art to be specific. These public bathrooms had very little to recommend them; no doors and only 3.5 foot walls, but there was this great art!
