The Skeletal Remains

The skeletal remains of a prehistoric
Acrophyseter sea creature discovered in the Open Polar Sea.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. ~Theodore Geisel 

I confess I made up the story that goes with the top photo.  In reality it is another photo of light and shadows in our house.  Clint called my attention to the shadows cast on the wall from a tiny sliver of  evening sunlight as it peeked through the window treatment and illuminated a fern in the living room.

I cropped the original photo, sharpened it, did a little saturation on it, worked on the contrast, inverted the color and recropped it again.  Suddenly my demented mind saw the skeletal remains.

The "before" photo, the reality.

Well done Cindy, you had me fooled there for a second, it's amazing what you can do with a little photo editing!

Hope you and Clint are having a good start to the week!

Cindy, you are naughty....my grandson saw the photo and said "oh wow, that's cool" and he came to get a closer look. Then I scrolled down......hmmmmm, he was so disappointed but he smiled. He's laughing about it. See, I told him, adults can be silly too (and I mean that in the nicest way)! LOL

I like the way your mind works- mine works the same!
