I had a short and mostly unusable set of shots I took of average subjects being enlarged to the point of absurdity, then cropped into unrecognizable 4-square chunks. I planned to use them as the art for a new storyline and music for Alice In Wonderland. I’ve never read the real story nor seen any production of it so this seemed like a fun ‘jump point’ for something unique and multimedia. I got to the 4th shot and scrapped it, leaving only some unrecognizable macros and this shot. The distortion rings are natural and I believe they were tiny ridges in the petals with an overall architecture that gave the illusion of terraced farming or someone’s memories of the 1960’s – not mine, of course. :-D

So here’s a bit dragged from the archives of my mind and laid out before you like some deep sea worm that expanded into horrific proportions from lack of pressure when dredged up to the surface. Cool, huh?

Someone recently said I wasn’t verbose. To that person: neener, neener!

The absolutely charming group Miniatures and Mammoths featured this piece with the heartfelt thanks!

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

  • Thanks! Glad you noticed that as it was part of the composition I really wanted to make it look deeper in there and alluring to my “Alice”. :-)

    I love this ~ feels like a optical illusion with being sucked into this floral vortex ~ if that makes any sense lol :) great shot Lenny~!! xx

  • Makes sense to me but then again, I’m mentally ill so you might need some medication. LOLOLOL! It really does look like some weird edit but I can’t even imagine how I could do it. God’s gotta handle this one for me. :-D

    Awww, thank you ever so much once again, darling! I didn’t ‘trip’ during the 60’s (or the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, or this century either) but I’ve been told this would look like a trip I didn’t take. LOL!

    Absolutley amazing colours- it is like the Carribean all in one flower! Great capture

  • Thank you, ejacent! Never been to the islands (or any island for that matter. LOL!) but from what I’ve heard, colourful is their way of life. If this even hints at that, I’m very, very happy.
