All Cross-Eyed

By ChiliMan
Thanks for the WONderful response to the last upload, people Grin

Now then…if there’s a Cyclops, then this would be the Anti-Cyclops in V1. To be more precise, Cross-Eyed Anti-Cyclops.

In V2 it’s wearing a little pink kerchief.

V3 is the lotus flower itself.

V4: While taking shots, I noticed this lady in my peripheral vision. Waiting patiently. I asked her to go ahead and she was so grateful! Poor thing. I hope she wasn’t waiting too long Sad Most people visiting the flower show seemed very gracious and good-natured.

V5: Now three things tickled me about these notes…

ONE, the scribbliness of the top note.
TWO, how the writing in the lower note got smaller and smaller…obviously bad font size management Grin
THREE, where it says “Fresh Flower Flower” in the lower note. Obviously trying to drum into our heads that it’s a REAL flower.

These make excellent subjects for toggers. I remember seeing some in a garden centre in southwest France once a few years ago but never managed to get it right. The flower is just beautiful with fab detail Andrew - but I have to go for v1 for its abstract quality and just because I love the seed heads so much!! Smile Love the note too!!

Cross-Eyed Anti-Cyclops. Wonderful! I did recognise this and I'm not sure how/why as I can't remember meeting a lotus before. Or a Cross-Eyed Anti-Cyclops, come to that.
V1 is nicely abstract. I like the placement, and the background curves.

Another great storyboard, Andrew. I like the abstractness of v1 but probably v4 is my favourite.

It's the angle of V1 that makes the viewer wonder what on earth it could be, that's why I like it.

What an unusual looking flower Andrew, superbly photographed. Is that a reflection of you taking the photograph I see in the background of v4?
