Light Bulb No. 1

I was playing around with GIMP today and I found a stock photo of a light bulb at www.sxc.hu/browse.phtml?f=view&id=190520. I tried doing things that are beyond my comprehension in a tutorial and ended up with this—it doesn't look anything like it's supposed to. This is the duotone version.

    Nice, I like this one. It needs another image to go along...
  • Chuck Coker 6y

    Pete Zarria — Thanks. What other image would go with this?
  • Pete Zarria 6y

    I'm not sure. Its your concept...;-} Maybe Einstein, the sun, pennies, psychedelic? A hogan, there's a contrast. Horse & buggy, candle, I'm just starting to percolate.

    Skate keys, bicycles, A Harley, Model T in the center... Church, famous grave, something really stupid like a fire extinguisher & sign pointing the wrong way. A new born...

    Pete Zarria — > A new born...

    I should have a newborn any day now, well, my daughter will have a newborn.
  • Pete Zarria 6y

    Congratulations old fellow! I forgot MommyWags was gittin' ready. A newborn and light bub could work...
  • Chuck Coker 6y

    Pete Zarria — Thanks. I wonder if I can make Logan glow like this . . .

    Thanks for adding creative commons! The image worked well in this blog post about small business ideas!
