Sample, purrr.


Kim said...

this work speaks volumes for me John...
I was really taken with the image of the eye and the title !!
and then I recalled that "Tiger! Tiger!" is a short story by Rudyard Kipling.
The title is derived from William Blake's poem "The Tyger"
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
in the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

which leads me back to your work :)

Thank you, Kim.

could you, just for language clarification, define again the difference in your world between sampling and how you use screen shots. or maybe you did already and i missed the post.

that's a great reference to blake's poem too...and oh yes, the image is quite striking.

Hi, Sue - sampling means saving the file to My Pictures and then using programs to alter image by way of cut and paste, color and contrast manipulation. Ghandi has both.

Screen shot is print screen, particularly when browser is overwhelmed thus melting the image on page.

The eyes remind me of the shapes on peacock feathers, but then the shapes on peacock feathers have always reminded me of eyes.

Gandhi is a star! meow.purr. Quite possibly one of my favorites. Fantastic!

Hi John, I love what you've done with Gandhi and I'm sure that when I tell her about it, it will go straight to her head.

I will steal this image from you and do something with it, although I must say that it is almost a crime to do so, because it is perfect as it is.

It's good to see you back here performing magic on our images.
