Christopher Budny level-deluxe February 25, 2007

I had the same thought; sort of a floral motif going on. Almost a "mod" vibe, from the 60's perhaps. Thanks for checking it out Don! You'll be happy to know I finally started compiling some images for the talk in March, though I fear everyone will have already viewed them here! ;) #3993167

Doodling in Photoshop Elements 2.0
Started with a square, B/W image of a cable-stayed suspension bridge. (Hence all the fine lines.)
Applied a Kaleidoscope filter, then the 2-passes Polar Coordinates trick for photo balls.
Re-cropped off-center, and used Hue/Saturation to colorize red.
