Illustration Friday: Backwards -

"Backwards"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
As the title suggests,backwards is the theme at Illustration Friday this week. I have to admit that, in the end, I took the easy way out and flopped a photograph. Even so, I did spend a few hours on at least three alternate images, none of which suggested the idea of backwards as well as this. Too, even though reversing the image was a simple thing to do, running it through the secret array to give it some drama seems to have taken it to a place of interest in spite of my sloth.

Same! Spelling backwards.

Why take the difficult way of thinking, when life can be easy... good for us, Mick -no blood, sweat or tears. Cheers:))

Almost the same. I did notice, however, that the word state is the French word meaning the same thing when it's backwards. Hpy will tell us! :)

Thanks very much for the comment and for your visit. I went to see your drawings and they're wonderful in a macabre sort of way. Elina is going to love them too! My favorite is "Boy and Girl"

This is cool...simple idea, but very nice piece of art...

Well I am still working on this, and I have become to a bit similar idea, after many funny experiments. :))
