Sometimes I like to play with pictures

Sometimes I like to play with pictures. This is a transformation of a picture shown within the last month. Anyone care to guess what picture it came from? :)

And for those who may wonder, this transformation was done by the Kaleidoscope function of Corel Paint Shop X. From time to time, I may post more such transformations. Patterns fascinate me. And if one has the right sense of humor, it can be especially amusing sometimes when the photo is of a person or group of people.

Your birthday cake. :)

And happy belated birthday Tim. I hope you had a wonderful day.

I love kaleidoscopes.


Fred said...

Great picture. I had no idea, since I was absent. (Excused, of course.)

samrina said...

Hi, tropical screamer. You're correct of course. :) And I'm glad you enjoy kaleidoscopes.

Hi, fred. Thanks, I think I'll excuse you. ;)

Thanks, samrina. The photo was originally of my birthday cake.

I bet Fred sent in a written apology for his abscence, signe dby both his mom and Dad with an approval stamp of his boss, am I right? :)
This picture is lovely...I have no clue as to what it is though!

Minka said...

Birthday cake? You had birthday?
Let me take this moment and:
"hann a afmaeli i dag,
hann a afmaeli i dag, hann a afmaeli hann...Tim-
hann a afmaeli i dag!

It wasn´t my best voice, but I hope the sentiment made it :)

Spider Girl said...

Yep, I was going to guess the cake too. That's a fun transformation. :)

Good job. This picture is Abstract Art !
I like the use of symmetry and the color too. Please continue to try the possibilities of your Canon A80 !

Is it a flower? I like to play with pictures too, but I don't have that program...anyway I don't think so.
I really haven't explored my computer programs to their fullest...some I haven't even opened.
I really love kaelidoscopes.

I should have read your comments before I answered. It was your birthday cake.

Hi, abandoned in pasadena. Ah, computer programs can usually do so much more than we ever take advantage of.

Do you own real kaleidoscopes too? You can get really nice ones at Xenlite Kaleidoscopes. They carry teleidoscopes too.
