Making Art

Participating in photo-a-day means that I am always on the lookout for an interesting photo opportunity.  And even though this whole month is themed writing, that doesn’t mean that I don’t take and post other interesting photos.

Driving to work is one of those times when I keep my eyes peeled for promising places to return to for a photo or two.  Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed a house not far from my school that seems to be made of concrete.  It’s huge, looks over the ocean, and has floor to ceiling windows…obviously designed for maximum visual impact, from inside and from outside.

And today as I drove by, I noticed skeletons and zombies and other creepy things through the windows and on the deck.  I knew I would stop by later and take some photos.  When I stopped on my way home I struggled to get a photo that captured what I could see with my eyes.

So I took this photo and used an editing app to play around with it.  Could I pull the photo in and see those full sized bodies standing on the deck?  Could I see through the windows?  Here is what I was able to produce from the picture above using the app Tadaa and the filter otherland.

I love that moment when a snapshot becomes a piece of art.  I wonder if that is what the owners of that house also had in mind?
