Weekly Photo Challenge – Out of This World

This weeks Photo Challenge, Out of This World, has us “share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown.” Here are 16 photos with my interpretation of the challenge. First up are a couple of flora photos…

One of my favorite places in California is Point Lobos when it is overcast. The rocks look out of this world…

The last 3 photos are from an area that has shown up in TV shows and movies…Vasquez rocks. The formations have appeared in episodes of NCIS, CSI and Star Trek, to name 3. As for movies, they filmed Blazing Saddles and The Flintstones there. I processed the photos to give even more of an Out of This World look.

For a list of TV shows, movies, and music videos filmed there, check out the Wikipedia page here.

    1. Thank you, Jim

  1. These are really cool! I love the Point Lobos rocks. those colors and swirls are amazing

    1. If you ever make it back to California, Point Lobos is just south of Carmel and well worth a few days scouring the reserve. Nature is truly an artist there, as you noticed with the rocks I showed.

      1. I’ve been there once but don’t remember what I saw — seals or a lighthouse? or maybe I drove past. For some reason I see the sign in my head but I’m not pulling up anything else from the memory banks

  2. These are all out of this world ? Otherworldly Tree is eery and amazing!

    1. Thank you, Aixa. I was catching up on your posts that I hadn’t seen, in search of your reply on how you get an Instagram post to show up in your blog post.

Digital Mixed Media Experiment

I’ve been fascinated watching people on YouTube create Art Journals. Inspired by their creations, I thought I’d try my hand on a digital mixed media look. This is what I came up with as an eCard for my step-fathers birthday (I left off the last piece with his name). Follow along as I show you step-by-step how I created this image.
