Jesterjeni, thanks for sharing. Now I am getting a little sentimental.

Well since things have slowed down here I have turned my attention to making up photos.  So a few months ago I purchased Mac Apps, Artmatic Designer and Artmatic Voyage.  These are hard apps to learn but they can produce some interesting scenes.

Hi Margie.  There was no before.  The whole picture was synthetic.  Made from selecting and adjusting the water level, the sky, the sun placement, the atmosphere the boulders and whatever.

Jesterjeni, Shujen, and Phil ... wow! Thanks for sharing. All of our creations have been in the kitchen. Tweaking cookie recipes and creating mystery dinners ... boredom has led to a need for lots and lots of exercise to work off all the taste-testing.  ;D  On the plus side, neighbors and friends are always happy to see us leave something at their front door.  ::)

Well thanks, Shadow.  Here is another creation made with Artmatic Voyager.  This one I did not make but was included with its "examples."

Very cool Phil. Looks like a scene right out of a video game or sci-fi pic.

Oh no, Phil! Those two moons are too close to each other. The gravity is going to pull them together!  :hug:

Why not another?

My soul is ornamental
It lingers - it hides

It mimics a dark revine
All my feelings travel there

He has embalmed the air
Making it difficult to breathe

The winds of summer sigh

I run to the broken stairways
My feet stumble
Chasing a dream
Aspiring after things I cannot reach

I pay the price
For my senseless breach
With the downfalleness of spirit

My compass moves in all different-directions
Like a magnet of confusion

I try desperately to convince myself
This is not just an allusion

I am caught
Upon his speech his words hung
I wondered as I listened- why does this not burn the mouth of the forked tongue?

Why is there nothing soft and dear?
Why is horridness what I hear?

I sit with a mighty mysterious
Vacant kind of look

The mind has elevated itself
Beyond tranquility
With muted expression

His troubling theory’s and scattered accounting’s continue

He seeks to penetrate the veil
Shooting words of delusion

Streaming evil
Splicing the recordings in his head
As if my very being was molded by his cunning hands

I do not cry
Before I’m hurt

I just wait

He shuts up within himself
His deliberate habits repeating
It’s almost visible

There’s no room in his head to turn

He shall continually self profess
His attributes of wisdom
His narrow minded morals emerge

There’s many a grave yard
Of the voiceless

I do not wish to be among them
