Mandarin Orange Monday


This week has been focused on the snake ...

In fact many snakes ...

What I love about snakes is their textures and colors ...

Great for digital dabbling ...

 Occasionally you see a hint of the snakes ...

But mostly it is many things in the minds of the viewer ...
Happy MOM Everyone ...



  1. OOOOhhh! Nice work with all those cool textures and patterns! You've produced some of the slithering or quick moves of the snake!

  2. Beautiful. But snakes still creep my wimpy self out.

  3. wow, that was a colorful bunch. Loved to see the one on your hand the other day. We have very few snakes in Sweden and they are not this colorful.

    So far only you seem interested in a new meme. But I just started. I shot down Blo-Ma so I could do another . I probably make one optional for DAM as birds. :)

  4. You will pleased to know that there are only 3 species of snake in Tasmania! And we saw a couple of them! The Devils are not really fearsome, and in fact they are under threat from a facial cancer (more on that soonish). If (when) you come to Australia I would put Tasmania on the list - but I'm a wildlife and mountains sort of person!

  5. WOW! These are stunning edits. You are right the colours and textures are amazing. by the way the birds yesterday were Black Guilimots.

  6. Great focus on the orange colors found in snakes! Love the patterns you were able to get.

  7. These are gorgeous! I can't think of a better word! My favourites are the last and third last...
    On impulse..when I was in SF ( in the hippy area..Ashbury?) on holiday, I bought a bag from an Op shop ( I forget what you call them..a charity shop).. and it was made from snake skin. I fantasised that it belonged to Janis Joplin. I don't know what got into me...poor snake... I have hidden it somewhere and can't bear to look at it. Now I think twice about buying a leather bag!

  8. Super cool. Perfect subject matter for creating abstract art. - Tell me again what program do you use to edit your photos?

    1. I just use Photoshop Elements ... nothing fancy. Sometimes I feel limited by only using one program, but it hasn't caused me to look for more yet ... in time, I suppose. Thanks for stopping by, Ida ...


  9. Very clever. I agree that they do have clever patterns and textures.
