. . . so I can share more Deep Dream efforts. For instance . . .
I also want to share a few observations. For instance . . .
I read a lot of stuff like this. Apparently, many habits and activities will increase your risk of dying.
Let me set your mind at ease: there’s nothing that increases your risk of dying . . . it’s already 100% and it’s not going any higher.
Anyway, I’m having a lot of fun with Deep Dream. I have lots of photographs that lend themselves to being blended with each other.
I wish I could show you the originals, but that would be too much work. If you want to see them, get an account and check out my gallery HERE.
Sometimes, I’ll try one combination and it’s OK, so I then try another. For instance, the opening shot of the fly was my second attempt. Here’s the first:
Occasionally, I try stuff and nothing I do gets me to what I envision. Such was the case with the photo of the goat . . .
I want to speak a moment about subtle humor. Judging by the number of people who miss most of mine, I conclude that subtle humor is a difficult target to hit using written language. Often, even verbal offerings miss the mark (again, personal experience.)
The visual medium offers a better chance for understanding even if slightly delayed. In fact, the slight delay in getting the joke makes it that more enjoyable (at least it does for me). Here are some examples of humor coming at you from left field.
Sometimes, subtlety is in the message . . .
In case people are wondering, I’m a cartoon packrat. I gots me cartoons going back to the 80s. Some of the strips have long since stopped publishing . . .
But, back to Deep Dream . . . You’ve already seen one of the treatments of my header photo, but here are the other tries.
One of the animals that seems to come out pretty good with almost any blending I throw at it is the buffalo. Here’s another example.
Here’s a blending of a cat with a photo of the spinner from a few posts ago . . .
Wait . . . I did say this was going to be a short post . . . How about one more and we’ll call it quits?
This last shot is a blend of a potato face and some shells.
This . . .
. . . plus this . . .
. . . gives you this:
Here’s the gallery for this post . . . at some point, I’ll do a SmugMug gallery with all the Deep Dreams in it.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.

. . . my FP ward . . . chieken shit.
Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.
