Gotta get a move on -

"The Fabulous Display"
digital collage by Mick Mather
I believe I have a few days of playtime coming. That will apply offline as well as on, but for tonight's post we're paying closer attention to the latter. I took two different elements, dragged them open to get a bit of pixelation, used a smoothing filter, enlarged that to this size and then began with the plug-ins, manipulators and other tools to knit them together. This is a working method that I employ often and the key ingredient tonight was to just have fun. I did have, with the added benefit that the piece came out a bit of alright at the same time. As you might surmise from the introduction, I have some real work to get to, but not this weekend! :)

Thanks for saying so and for stopping by No Matter What Shape - The Archive last week. That was an excellent question for a blue-collar quantum mechanic like myself. :D

Season sales have begun! Elegia, Helene and Susu are rushing for the goodies! And do they look slim and stylish!
Thanks, Mick!

This is elegant, the whole stuff is elegant (colors, women, the scene).

Ahh, nothing so satisfying for a man like me who's in favor of the womens' movement, especially from behind! :D

Thanks for the comment about elegance. I'm not sure though. It appears certain that Susu, making a beeline through the shop door there, is soon to take something shiny from the bottom of that window display! I'm listening for the crash as we speak! :D

Good one Mick! For some reason I'm hearing that song "Walk this Way" when I look at this.
