April Self Portrait Challenge: Imitate Art

Inspired by Andy Warhol's 1967 pop art piece "10 Marilyns".
I created this image for the April Self Portrait Challenge: Imitate Art. The idea was to make a self portrait imitating a classic or contemporary work of art or an iconic photograph. I was inspired…

I just attempted to make identical posts on Facebook and G+. Once again, Facebook wins hands down in ease of use. So tired of leaving feedback practically every day about yet another thing Google has botched.

+Elizabeth Hahn is the meta data still retained and intact? If so, why isn't it fully displayed?

It looks like they are bending down to drink. More likely, they are simply freezing to death.

What better way to spend a snowy Saturday than making photo art from the tulips that were so radiant just a few days ago.

The B&W Project 8/26 This old broom has seen a lot over the years, most recently when I used it to finish some concrete patches. The textures of the straw, the twine holding it together and the…

Thank you everyone. I enjoyed hunting for an ordinary object and deciding how best to show its textures.

Thanks all! My original concept was a person trapped in a bubble but I didn't feel like getting dressed up for it. :-)

soft, as long as they're authentic. Southern California and Baja has spoiled me, I never knew what a real taco was until I moved here!

It's a pretty simple layering of two textures from my archives on the original tulip photo, with a layer mask on one of them to make that texture apply only to the background, and one more layer with my watermark. I spent less than 10 minutes processing this image.

This is a must watch video of the Devil's Pool portion of Victoria Falls. I was there with a bunch of scavenger friends last September, some of whom actually took the plunge in the pool. We posted some awesome photos and videos, but this video shows you what it was actually like to be there. It's a 3D video so drag your mouse around while it's playing to get the full effect. The only thing missing is getting wet from all the mist, so be sure to spray yourself with a water bottle while watching! ;-)
