"There's A Parrot In The Floor!"

my granddaughter Hope said when she saw this reflection created by sunlight on a piece of crystal.



I've been playing around with new photo editing sites now that Picnik.com will be shutting down. I created this at iPiccy.com.

EG Wow said...

I see the parrot. :)

Looks like you're having fun at iPiccy.com. I may have to try that site out. :.

Dianne, this is the COOLEST shot!

And yes, it DOES look exactly like a parrot!!!

It's funny because earlier today I was visiting one of my blogging friends' blog, and she also posted a photo of prism light!

Thanks for sharing the photo editing site, I will definitely check it out.

Hope you had a FAB day!

X ya!

It is amazing how the wood grain gives our imagination a workout like this. When Allegra was much younger, she also saw a parrot on wall paneling. When we parents saw what she saw, we were amazed - the grain looks still like a bird. Neat!

What a lovely rainbow!

Ooh, those are all so pretty! Both the parrot and the home-made ones.
I think that set of four would be lovely to hang on the wall!

Like a parrot with a rainbow cloak! Such a lovely image! And love the collage of colour tones!

ipiccy looks to be the best replacement for Picnik .. the only downside I see is its not got storage space online and it doesnt link back to Picasa (where I keep the photos I post on my blog) .. I love the 'parrot' and Hope's awesome imagination .. and of course you!

Gorgeous results ! especially the "parrot" !

Rebecca said...

I'll have to check out ipiccy! Looks like you are having fun playing!

Children have such great imaginations. I too like iPiccy as an alternative to Picnik. I noticed today that just in the past few days they have now added curves and levels and a cloning tool, so it now has just about everything I liked from Picnik.

Out of the mouths of babes..they have magic eyes that we lose as we get older..thank you Hope..

Emille said...

Funky it is! Had to chuckle - I also have a grand daughter (the first one) named Hope:)

Sallie (FullTime-Life.com said...

I'm just waiting until Hope starts her own blog! She has an original and creative mind. (Wonder where she gets that anyway?)

Very interesting picture series -- and of course I love the parrot one the best, me and Hope! I should go look at that IPiccy. I never really used Picnik much, but I could use something.

Nancy said...

What a delight to see things through a child's eyes!

Patti said...

I love that Hope saw a parrot in the colors.
Like Ralph, I also remember when young Allegra saw a parrot in the wood grain paneling.

Come to think of it, the parrot's still there.
