Perhaps our dreaming, all our scheming
Will keep us striving to our contriving
Towards all that would be our hopes full-grown.
Hoping Today IS
The Greatest Day I’ve Ever Known

Today really is the greatest day I’ve ever known. . .
Each day is. . . as it should be.
Enjoy all of the little idiodysseys experienced in life
For the alternative is one not to be considered. . .

Additional thoughts as inspired by Rosa:

The sky, it is suffocating – as is a possibility with the girl hanging by her neck as she is trying to balance everything around her while the walls of the world ooze their sticky dark tar. . . and all the while the child continues to beacon… come here she says to the bird who sits there refusing to comply. He does not want to be part of the quicksand dart board. . . and then there the is the chimp who is so entertained by it all… he is quite enjoying himself and wonders who has conjured him there. . .

This is what your thoughts made me think… THANK YOU Rosa….

Jul 22, 10 TOP FIVE Who Are You to Judge – Surreal Landscapes

Sept 17

I started this with my original image shot with my Nikon CP8400. Taken at sunset at one of my favorite magical places, Camp Pendleton, San Onofre, Southern CA, USA.
My assignment: My first attempt at surrealism. Created in Photoshop CS2 – look deeply & you will see fractals created in Fractal Extreme. Used the Fractalius filter on various objects in the image & Redfield ripples.
