Been awhile. . .

I found a neat site by way of another blogger, jennymcb. I really enjoy going there and experimenting. But the first photo I tried to use for image mosaic was very unusual. At first I thought they had altered my pink tulip photo because to the left of the flower there appeared a MAN IN A BOWLER HAT.

This is the original:

This is the mosaic they made out of my photo. CAN YOU SEE THE MAN IN THE BOWLER HAT THAT I DID NOT SEE BEFORE IN THE ORIGINAL PHOTO? Now that I look at the original, I can see it there also.

This is the mosaic:

Do you see the man in the bowler hat on the left? It is just the bedding of the garden where I took the photo. Crazy huh? I never noticed it with original photo before the mosaic and now I can see it clearly.

Your original is so pretty and the mosaic is kind of creepy with the "man" there. I love those kind of web sites where you can play, when I win powerball, I am going to buy Photoshop so I can play all day!!

Wow! I thought maybe you were in bed already sicne we live on opposite coasts.

The instructions were to step back a bit and view it. When I did, I saw the man and it creeped me out. I had never noticed how the ground covering looked like that in the original photo. Now that I am aware of it, I see it with no trouble at all.

I am going to go try it with a few more photos. . . I am impressed with the huge sized mosaics but when it is this little, it takes away from the beauty of the original flower.

I want to see what it does to my dragonfly.
