Meeting whales in my children's world by 


I’ve created this collage about two years ago for a thematic contest Fish at fotki.com. Having no photograph of a real fish, and no chance to get one within the deadline, I had to improvise a bit…

I have photographed a plush whale and two dolphins on a blue-green knitted dress (laid in a way to produce “waves”) of my daughter, with a pillow under the dress to support dolphins ;) Later, I’ve modified the background (knitted structure) in GIMP to make its fine structure invisible and added one more whale. Finally, enlarged and used the oilify filter.

August 2007. Canon A200. Post-processing: GIMP, see the description above.

    Cute idea! You could probably do a short story book. :-)

    So adorable and creative. I could see this in a children’s illustrated book.
