A Cute Squirrel and a Study in Design
The picture of the squirrel above was taken at Peace Valley Park near Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania; but it could have been taken almost anywhere. I just like the way it is perched on a limb with a eye on its surroundings and perhaps expecially on me.
This is the same photo as the first one but processed with a hot wax filter. It intrigues me in its larger size which can be seen by clicking on the picture. I like to sit back and let the picture just soak into me gazing in silent reverie at the evolving patterns. You have to have an appreciation for the abstract and the unreal in order to appreciate this one. :)
This, too, is the same photo but processed by a kaleidoscope filter. I like how it geometrically reproduces recognizable parts of the picture to give a whole new feeling.
