RETURN TO THE SEA

"Return to the Sea" (6-4-17 038v3b) made me want to cry as I worked on it last night. (This one's best viewed in a larger version, so just click on the image to see the detail.) I kept associating it to the actual -- as opposed to Disney version -- ending to the fairy tale "The Little Mermaid." After giving up her fish tail for (if I remember correctly, useless) land legs and losing the Prince she'd done this for, she dives back into the sea again, becoming one with it. Yeah, who's really blue?

HYDRA RISING

"Hydra Rising" (5-27-17 024v3) was just now fudged from a rather new pic. This is one of my fave trees I come across on long walks. But honestly, to steal from Will Rogers, I've never met a tree I didn't like. :-) BTW, when I say "fudged," that's just with color contrasts and texture, as this is how the tree is actually shaping up.

HER DREAMS COLOR THE NIGHT

"Her Dreams Color the Night" (6-4-17 028v2) is a recent pic, just fudged with a couple of days ago. This block of bougainvillea has been on my list of things to take pix of and I finally tried. However, I need to take some pix of it later in the day when the sun isn't as high in the sky and maybe I won't need to morph the behoositz out of it to get any result I'm happy with. Its reds and fuchsias are problematic enough without bright direct sunlight. :-) BTW, I thought of calling this "Sleeping Beauty's Dreams Color the Night" but that's such a mouthful. Yet, I always think of Sleeping Beauty snoring away in a castle behind these bushes that are sort of brambly with twiggy tangled areas, even when they're in full bloom as they are this time of year.

STUDY IN ROYAL BLUE

"Study in Royal Blue" (6-4-17 024v2) was morphed a couple days ago from a fairly new pic. It's rather unusual for me to retain this color when it results from color inversion. But I was particularly glad I did when I realized today is Father's Day. How perfect, I thought! Dad's favorite color was royal blue.

DISCONNECT

"Disconnect" (5-27-17 002v2) was morphed yesterday from a recent pic. I pass this fenced around, house in disrepair whenever I walk to the beach. Although always in disrepair, it looks different every time. Different boards in the fence are in different shape, sometimes there are these gorgeous white blossoms on a tree that overhangs the fence, and much else can vary. As I rolled by (I have to use a walker on my long walks) this particular broken board really grabbed my attention. I've also considered naming this pic of it "Broken Vision." It was just such an evocative sight. Sad and lonely, with a possible residue of anger: did someone break that board? Or was it's ability to support just finally passed?
