Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #209 Surreal

This week Tracy challenged me to present my photographs representing the surreal

When I retired from teaching I enrolled in many local community college classes here in Sacramento to improve my Adobe software knowledge and improve my digital photography. At that time Photoshop CS2 had just been released, and I had just upgraded from Photoshop 5. Class assignments helped push me out of my comfort zone. I found some examples of surrealism from my work at that time.

Colorized Sunflower
I titled this collage, ”Communication”
I used a Topaz filter to create this image.
Titled ”Time Flies” gives a nod to Salvador Dali

I visited a Salvador Dali exhibition in Monterey a couple of years back.

Fungi always seem a bit surreal to me.

A captured reflection near the Space Needle in Seattle.
Movement from a taffy-making machine
Came across this in the Gold Country many years ago.
Don’t remember where and never saw it again.

I’ll end this surreal journey with my interpretation of three words – flaming, expanding and door.

Flaming Door Expanding

I hope you enjoyed this look at my surreal photographs. Is time feeling a bit surreal for you, it is for me!
