I have no idea how I did these or when I did them, although I suspect it might have been May 2017. I have definite doubts about having done them at all. This sort of processing is on a par with bonsai and various form of land-art, about which I also have reservations. But somehow, having fiddled with nature, I can’t quite bring myself to delete!
The moral dilemmas one faces as a blogger! Once I’d been tempted to play around with effects and filters (using Lunapic) I knew I was lost. There was no way I was going to put the genie back in the bottle. And yet, once I transformed a tree shadow, I began to wonder. It was splendid without any fiddling and LucidGypsy’s quote from Satish Kumar confronted my desire to post mutations, especially tree-related. But, being a Scorpio, I rather fancied them. As with every moral dilemma I have ever faced, I remain ambivalent and go ahead and do it anyway. I’m hoping this excess will cure me of interfering with nature.
I’d love to hear rationales for this kind of transforming, and I’d also like to make a tally of favourite effects. So please vote!
