The Escher fly

Post by Danny »

Maybe slightly different than most........just a tad :wink: So we start off with a macro shot of a fly and change a few things. Escher always leaves me in awe of what he did, so its about as close as I can get and still nature macro :roll:

All the best macroholics.

Danny.

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.

Well maybe, still not sure :smt017 . One thing though I noticed is that this Dutchman seems to think fairly, not exactly, along the same lines as another, Hieronymous Bosch (1450? - 1516) Wonder what it was with these dutchmen? :-k

The flies are pollinating some strange looking flowers in your garden Danny! Looks if they don't come as seeds, but you buy them as "flat packs"!

I think Hieronymous Bosch is fascinating--Often yucky, but fascinating! Escher is great, but doesn't fascinate me as much. Danny, I'd go for an image of ants running around stems that went up and down (instead of stairs). Unique choice for inspiration here!

Hey good to see you back here Danny!!!
Coming strong with your trademark, the spitbubbles.

Realy like Escher, I have 3 or 4 books with drawings and stuff like that, even a small biography.

Nice translation / intrepertation of his work.

All the best,
