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!
