This image started out as a not so interesting photograph of my wet footprints on the sandstone path in my back garden and was taken to accompany an entry in my main blog. The entry was concerned with the question of ‘where we stand’, particularly in terms of what grounds we may or may not have for claiming that one knowledge claim is better than another.

The image is the result of using Photoshop’s Stained Glass filter – once in the center of the image and again, using a smaller cell size, around the edge. While many of my recent Photoshop creations are the result of almost random experimentation (I suppose I’ll get the hang of using it at some point) I’m pleased with this image because it’s reasonably close to how I envisioned it.

The only problem with this image, at least as it’s presented here, is that the lines between the cells in the center of the image aren’t as sharp as they are in the original. Clearly there’s always some degredation of an image when it’s resized, but it’s particularly noticeable in this case.

Wow. Very interesting now that I see the technique.

I mean... it was interesting before... but I was sitting here staring at the image saying aloud... "how did he do that? what am I looking at? what was he standing on?"

only one comment so far for such a great image! (i'm browsing backward through chromasia, and enjoying every minute :)
