It seems to me that a little play adds spark to one's photographic journey. (Tomorrow it's (at least temporarily) back to business.)

I love when I get a chance to "play" in photoshop and see what I can make. This is pretty intense.

Flashy colors. I can only guess what's shown in the picture, but it looks like it's gonna bite. Very nice abstract :)

Oh man, I thought I was back to trip-tastic 1973 for a meoment! Jack, if this was adorned by a 'recognised' fashionista, it would hang in the Tate Modern in Central London and fetch millions, as well as the adulation of the arts critics

Wild man

Back to the seventies;) Nice warm colours!

@ninni: Seventies?? No way; this is the Sixties!! I finished grad school in 1960 and lived in the San Francisco Area all through that wonderful decade; what a great place to be a young radical.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Waoh, psychedelic !!! Be careful Jack... :-))

@Evelyne Dubos: It looks to me like an African flower. Don't you remember seeing these when you were there?

@Suzanne: It was a very quick conversion done by applying one filter in Nik's Color Efex Pro.
