I Love Abstract

I recently created a little "personal space" in the basement where I can play with my camera, and tonight I was down there playing around, looking for things to photograph. I bought two of those aluminum reflector lamps, you know the ones with the clamps that you can hang anywhere you need light? I took a simple photo of the inside of one of those aluminum reflectors and liked the effect right out of the camera. It had a neat tunneling effect. So I downloaded it to my computer and played with the editing tools. I tried the "hypnotic" tool and this is what I got. Really cool I thought. You can see the underlying reflector and its tooled rings, but I think I like this version the best.
Very cool shot

Great idea to create a place to photograph pictures. I realize that it's going to be cold and I'll have to work on the inside shots more.

Great idea...and so interesting! I do think I'm dizzy!
