This macabre thing caught my eye at Rockaway Beach. I thought it was a dead animal at first. This gloomy image matched my mood at that moment. I am in mourning for our recently departed bird Dinka and slip into melancholy easily.
Lamp in Washington Square edited to create the mood I wanted.
Bank Street Tree
I had this dark processing in mind when I photographed this tree in the snow. The third of these three processing methods is an inverted image that makes it look a little like an infrared image.
Method: In Photoshop I cloned out the windows, added a starburst protecting the darks, added a vignette, converted it to B&W, and added a blur and masking out the center. In the third one I inverted the image as well.

Spider and Pod
A spider like the one in Dr. Who last night came in to play with a smoking pod. A composite created for Halloween starting with a seed pod photographed in Central Park, October 28, 2018 and with smoke brushed in.
I made these digital art images for Halloween in October 2000. They are composits of Stonehenge, a butterfly and a black cat. I used to have a black cat named Sooty when I was a little girl. I love Stonehenge and the ancient history of Britain, and the mythoogy of pre-christian celts and druids. An enjoyable historic novel is Sarum: A Novel of England by Edward Rutherford.
I had a dream that golden toads where raining down in a golden forest back in 2001. After the dream I learned that Golden Toads had becoem extinct in Costa Rica in 1989. These composite images representing my dream are old and not very skillfully done but they tell the story.
I sprinkled my eyes in the grass using Photoshop. Can you find all eight?
The common name of the Toad Lily (Tricyrtis formosana) is spooky. I created the web effects and dramatic lighting in Photoshop.
