Kaleidoscope - View 1

Kaleidoscopic view taken with the lens of my camera held against the lens of the kaleidoscope, at Botanica. Had no idea if this would turn out, but was delighted to see - it did! Come back tomorrow and I'll show you what the actual kaleidoscope looks like from a distance. I think it's ingenious and appropriate for Botanica to offer this fun (and different) view of flowers. Do you see the leaves?... and petals?

Now this is quite interesting. :) :) Love the shapes and colors. If you are working in photoshop or have some other photo program, perhaps you could create a square crop, cropping off the black area to the left. Then your eye would go right to your lovely image and not wonder over to that side. Hope you dont mind me saying.. just my opinion of course.. :) :) :) This is an awesome idea for a nice abstract image. :) :)

What an idea - and it was a worthwhile one too. This is intriguing.

wow! So this is what the view looks like through the scope! Now I wish we had a flower kaleidoscope here too! :)

How pretty! Reminds me of a lacy doily.
