Every now and then I get tired of “realistic” photographs and I start playing with hand-coloring photographs, photographic constructions and other manipulations. As spring progresses, I suppose that I will be attracted back to flowers, trees, birds and their kin but, for a few weeks at least, all rules are off.

You can explore some of these visions in two different ways.



First, here is a short musical, video dissolve of the images. I suggest viewing the show in full screen by clicking the star-shaped icon in the lower right of the screen. Please, leave your candid reaction in the “comments” below 

You can also explore the photographs in more detail along with a written explanation of each by browsing through the gallery below. Once more, I suggest viewing it full screen by clicking the expand arrows <-> in the bottom right of the frame.  To return to regular view hit the expand arrows again or, hit escape. Hover over the photo to see the text.

  1. Time to print these up and share with a gallery exhibition….stunning work…bravo!

  2. Great album, David, many thanks for sharing!

  3. Yep, the photos are mine. I use “polar coordinates” in Photoshop. Basically you grab each end of the horizon and loop or twist the together. It takes a while to get the hang of what type of photo work best. Then all that is left is to clean up any unwanted artifacts of the process and add a few post tweaks. It isn’t difficult. I would be happy to walk you through it if you wish.

  4. These are your photos? How were they done?

  5. That is different. I am going to have dreams of weird themed planets circling round the cosmos.

  6. Take a look, the Cows are there.

  7. Really neat, Dave!! I really like this concept! Next, maybe a circle of cows or dogs!
