I’ve a great friend who also happens to be a world-class Podiatrist who also happens to be my brother. A couple years ago he brought me a few very peculiar tree branches. The wood under the bark had been etched (by forces unknown) with strange alien-looking symbols.
“Might make a great photo”, he said. I agreed and placed them on a workbench for the moment. Moments and me being what we are, years passed – well, two anyway – until I rediscovered them under a pile of other interesting things that had also been placed on the bench. They were still peculiar but had somehow also become fascinating. Fascinating enough that I went to get the camera. I began my photographic exploration of the alien symbols. I’m doing it still. Here are a few images to tide you over while I continue the process. The final images should make a nice addition to my website galleries. More on that later.
This EDOF Scrollgram changes focus as you roll your mouse across the frame. The image above contains over fifty images taken at different focal planes. The Scrollgram below uses every fourth image.
This EDOF image is a photomicrograph, a super-closeup of one area of one branch about 2 millimeters on a side. The details are beyond unaided human vision.
The EDOF multi-image composition above contains over thirty images. The Scrollgram below uses thirteen of those images and changes focus as you roll your mouse across the frame.
