Week #2 has a weird theme "Faces in Other Places"

Well, I took a few shots of the grandson while we were in New Orleans visiting the Aquarium of the Americas, posed in the photo op background they have. I added a shot of the parrot he liked best to replace the cartoon parrot on the background, and played a good bit in Photoshop and Impressions. I may add another if either of the other two efforts I have turn out. I think they really meant for us to look for faces in tree bark or something, but we have not had a dry day in 2 weeks so I did my own interpretation.

Streetlights

I do not like streetlights and often clone them out so this was not a welcome topic. If I was somewhere that had pretty streetlights like New Orleans or Barcelona or Victoria, I'd enjoy photographing them. But in Mississippi the things are strictly utilitarian and usually dilapidated. So I took a photo of the ugly street light on the corner by my house, and played with it.

This week's theme - Water Drops, bubbles, splashes

I didn't try an experiment with water drops this time, but may before the week is over. My initial creation was shot in my holly bush in the rain a couple of days ago, then overlaid with a shot of a bowl of dish detergent bubbles. Then fiddled with in Photoshop and given a frame of old paper and doilies. These little challenges do keep my camera from rusting shut.

This week's theme is Composites and Collages.

Since I make composites so much I decided to make a collage using the same theme as my recent post on Organ Pipe NM. I used an old engraving from the monument from the 1800s, an old illustration from some of its botanical specimens, some of my photos, some textures and some text. Just trying to learn to weave things together.... I'm wondering if I should make the images monochrome or tone them in the background color...
