Another Quick Deep Dream Post – more textures

Still using my phone for these posts. Not the easiest way to do this, but doable. 

Continuing with the Deep Dream textures, I’ll present a few more results of my experiments with mixing two separate photos in Deep Dream. Because I’m not at home and these are just random photos, I don’t have the original photos that I used for creating the effects.

I can however show the results of — for instance — using wood photos as a style . . . 

Cougar mixed with photo of the end of a log.

Understand, I have no idea how these will show up in the post. Usually, I set them up so that clicking on them will get you the original size in a new window, but this being the crappy WordPress app, I don’t have that option and don’t know how this will present itself once I publish it. 

Here’s another of a monkey blended with the drawing of a piece of wood. 

That’s actually not that much different from the original. I do have with me the file that was used as the Style imput for he above result:

All that did is smooth out the original.

I also tried doing a few scenery photos with mixed results.

That’s a log in the water mixed with one of my Topax iterations. It’s OK as a possible abstract.

This next series is of the dock I’ve used a lot. In this case, I’m using what is normally a style photo as the main photo that I blend with others. By the way, the next shot is a daytime photo as opposed to the usual sunrise shot.

That shot is blended with a photo of a circular copper wind ornament. 

Here, I was curious what happens if one uses the same photo both for the original and the style . . . this is the sunrise shot I’ve used for many iteration . . . It doesn’t do much to modify itself but it does give it a nice solft look. 

That is the sunrise scene blended with a dandelion shot (I think — I’m writing this from memory and I’m an old fart, so I could be mistaken.)

That’s one of my favorite versions of that shot, combining the sunrise photo with a photo of a snow scene that I had modified toooking like a nightime shot using Topaz. 

Another scenery shot I worked with is a shot of Pulpit Rock in Colorado Springs. Here’s the result when married to the copper wind ornament.

Next is the same original photo married to a photo of the Silversword, a plant that grows only in on the slopes of volcanoes in on Hawaii.

This next shot is Rainbow Falls, in Hilo, modified with a photo of colorful fabric. 

Last, but not least, a photo of a lighthouse in the Olimpic Peninsula modified with . . . well, I don’t remember what, right now. Looks nice, though. 

A quick word to people who run blogs that I subscribe to. 

I will try and read most of the blogs while still on land, but the operative word is try. Once I get on the boat (we’re going on a cruise) I’ll probably be doing less reading. 

Even assuming I do read, I don’t know how easy it will be to leave comments. I’ll try, but we’ll see. 

In the meantime, I hope everyone is havign a great Labor Day weekend.

ttfn, Disperser (a.k.a. ejd)

p. s. — feel free to point out spelling mistakes as working on the small screen is a pain and I’m sure some errors went unnoticed. Thanks.

    Plain and simply . . . like them all. The colorful ones really stand out. But the one that got lots of my attention is the lighthouse photo . . . wow!


  3. ALL of these are a joy to look at, Emilio!
    The Falls and fabric combo is really beautiful, as are the 3 sunset shots! Love the colors in them! :
    Have fun on land and on sea! Eat some delicious food! Explore some things! Shoot some photos! Take some naps! But don’t shoot photos while taking naps!

    HUGS!!! :-)

    I like it, but starting to think I’m on some hallucinate drug! It’s a fascinating view into how actual images can be transformed in infinite ways, many of which I’m sure could have commercial value! Have a good cruise! M ☺
