a light reflects on all the things that make you real.
things that make you truly free.
and i want to know: do you feel the same way?
cause if you do, i want to stay forever ...
-- Ween, Stay Forever
from the album White Pepper
(i don't recommend all of Ween's work to everyone, but this is actually a very sweet song.)
HMAM: "i like to move it move it ..."
Our Daily Challenge: deliberate blur abstract
the geek behind the curtain:
"i like to move it, move it ..." : check.
deliberate blur: check.
abstract: uh ... well ...
damn. i failed this.
so, took this shot in my garage during my lunch break today. i'm just sitting on a tall bar chair holding a flashlight with the main light off -- though daylight is leaking in through the top of the garage door. doctored the photo to remove my pupils and mouth. then copied that "starting photo" onto 5 or 6 layers, then rotated and blurred each slightly. came back in and added a layer of texture from a wire screen, copied it and flipped it so the screen is there twice with corrosion on both sides of the composition. then added a layer of texture from a shot of rotting wood. erased away the multiple layers from around the eyes so they would look "in focus" compared to everything else.
