Crocus Keleidoscopes

As many of you all know, I play around with keleidoscopic and abstract art from time to time. Here is the most recent fun with that. The original photo is the first photo in the previous post.

These are pretty cool. I know someone who does a lot of fractals, I dont understand how to do them but I love looking at them!! :o)

You're like a little kid with these, Tim. I don't know of anyone who does as many of them as you! You seem to pick good photos for them.

Takes me back! I am amazed how quickly the snow has gone. Do you not get any flooding? You have some beautiful country where you walk!

Reminds me of that toy I am sure we all had when we were kids!

Tim, you are a master to be able to add beauty to the beautiful crocus

Fun! :) Happy spring!

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, talj. Glad I could provide them for your viewing pleasure! :)

Thanks, ginnie. Sometimes there's something good about being like a little kid when it comes to enjoying life. :)

Thanks, libbys blog. The weather got warm and it rained quite a bit; thus the snow disappeared. It was soggy a lot of places but not really any flooding.

Thanks, san nakji. Those were fun, weren't they?

Thanks, sage. If you have the right tools and patience, it is not too difficult.

Thanks, mikaela. I wish you a happy Spring, too! :)

Pretty to see, fun to make too, I imagine. I have a kaleidoscope and enjoy looking down the barrel now and again.

Gee, Tim, you usually make us guess at what the original picture was. Are you going soft on us? :-)

trixi said...

Ooh, these are wonderful. I can easily get lost in them....and for some reason started singing "Lucy in the sky with Diamonds" as I stared at them.

These are fascinating to me. i don't know how to do them but I enjoy your pieces of art.

They look a bit like knitting patterns:)

Ex-Shammickite said...

Interesting patterns... do you need a special programme to make them? But I have to admit, I like the original picture the best!

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, Annie. Keleidoscapes are fun to play with. :)

Hi, murf. If I'm going soft, do you like that for this blog? ;)

Thanks, trixi. Glad you enjoyed my fun! :)

Thanks, photowannabe. Always glad to provide artistic beauty. :)

Hi, choochoo. They do look like knitting patterns, don't they?

Hi, Ex-Shammickite. Glad you enjoyed them. I used Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI to make these. And I wouldn't want to miss the beauty of the original either. :)

I'm undecided. If you forced us to use our imagination, this particular one would have been a toughie.

I was in a mountain and I saw so many flowers for instance crocus white and blue and purple and also a wild tulip which is the symbol of that mountain (Vercors) a very special one. This tulip was not yet blossomed though, because of the snow...
