Magpie Butterfly Bozeman, Montana 2012Creating a composite image out of repetitions and manipulations of a single photograph is a fun challenge and very time consuming too. Between all the Photoshop intricacies and many iterations trying to figure out what I really wanted to do creatively, I spent 8-10 hours on this one yesterday. Good thing I (sometimes) have nothing better to do. I like this arrangement a lot; perhaps because it has a similar strong black and while graphic look as some of the patterns of ancient Mimbres pottery which I’ve always admired.]]>

Love it – as much as I loved yesterday’s “poster”! I imagine the process takes on a life of it’s own. Merry Christmas!
Thanks Judy, and Merry Christmas to you, Mark and family as well.
All of your composites over the last few days have been really beautiful. For some reason, I always like the magpie ones the best. I think it’s because of their black- and whitedness. A magpie butterfly is surely original, isn’t it?
Thanks Carol. I think the graphic “black and whitedness” of the magpies is quite striking. Not bad for a bird with such a nasty reputation.
