I’m so intrigued by these mash-ups (for lack of a better word) I no longer try to figure out what exactly they originate from. I just enjoy them for what they are. A visual treat. Nice work, Alan.

Thank you Ken.
It’s just as well you haven’t bothered to figure out where these originated because the source was a very, very distant subject: my open palm and fingers. (It might be more apparent now in the first image.)
The previous post on Wednesday were mashups of an outdoor banner blowing in the wind. The first image was one of the ones I started with.
Unlike Ansel Adams’s emphasis on pre-visualization, I have no idea where these composites will end up once I begin. I may be disappointed in the single image and go to Plan B instead, or I may like the single image but also be intrigued by the potential of sandwiching several of them together. It offers a whole new language/vocabulary that I enjoy a lot.
When I started Pixetera, I wrote that I thought I was a “painter at heart.” And when you can’t paint, photography is the next best thing :)
I appreciate your taking the time to explain these images, Alan. You may have noticed that I have done much the same in some previous posts. My feeling is that light, shadow, texture, shapes, and color are interesting in themselves and I’ve tried to project that in some of my own work. I also think this type of image is rare (at least in the blogs I follow) so it’s a treat to see work like this that is consistently thought-provoking. As a side note, my painting skills are excellent. I just painted my bathroom and I can cut in around a window very nicely, thank you.
Do you also sand floors Ken?
