For this I started with a digital photo of my mom’s glass menagerie, mostly colorful birds and a lot of crystal figurines. Lovely as they are, I could not make a picture of the collection that I thought was anything but nice but boring. So I started playing with filters to see what would happen, and this was the result. Not really planned, but when it appeared I heard the opening strains of Also Spracht Zarathustra in my head. Daaaa, daaaa, da DAAAAAAA. I love that music.
