Deep Dream Generator — the “meh” files

I’ve been playing with Deep Dream Generator and while I like most of what I get, there’s a learning curve of sorts that one has to negotiate. Sometimes, you head off into the weeds. 

“What do you mean?” you ask. 

Well, here’s an example . . . 

I meant well and I wanted to use some of the photos from the fabric shop but in this case, it didn’t work out so well.

This next used a buffalo and a cityscape. 

I’m just going to dump a bunch of the lesser files here ahead of doing a post on the ones I really like. This makes this a most unusual post . . . short on both photos and words. 

I promise that the next Deep Dream post will have some very nice renditions . . . you don’t believe me? Here’s a sample (only one) . . .

OK, OK, so that’s not one of the better ones, but it’s still better than the ones below.

All of these are photos that have appeared on this blog. You might even recognize a few. And now, here’s the gallery.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

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.

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.

  1. Sorry, Disperser, but I would rather read one of your short stories or look at some of your “dreamless” photos!


  2. Well, I’m enjoying your Deep Dream creations! Each one is so different and unique! And after looking at the “whole”, I try to see the two photos that you combined. :-)
    Too many favorites to list in my comment.
    I’m trying to remember if Mr. Skinny had a name…I’m thinking he did and I can’t remember it. But, he looks like he finally put on a little weight! Good for him! :-D
    HUGS!!! :-)

    You know I enjoy “artsy” stuff so all the above still made the cut for me . . . perhaps not all Oscar winners, but I enjoyed trying to figure out which photos you used as background or whatever you call the one that ‘animates’ the subject. Anyway, the bee and Firefly are exceptional!!
