Below are some photographs that I morphed using image altering software. is a free software product produced in association with Microsoft. It is first class and it is absolutely free.

I have a series of photos in mind under the title of "Dreamscape". Some of them are included here. I put them together and they seem to allude to something altogether different.

Rapping at your window.

The Shaman calling forth forms from the vast potential of possibilities.

At one point in the days experience I discovered a snail crawling up my window and took about 40 photographs. I deleted at least half of them.

Immediately below is the original picture of the snail and a second photograph. The changes made are seen in the photographs at the bottom of the page.

This is the same snail showing more of it's features. I got the idea the black fiber like thing was food. He seemed to have some kind of interaction with it in different photographs that I took. Maybe it was just in his way. But I did watch him for a while and got the impression he was eating.

Below are altered photos of the snail. I got some good effects. When I do this I have in the back of my mind the idea that I am drawing from the unlimited potential of the 'Tao'. It's a way I have come to live with every passing moment.

I wanted to see if I could make something out of it if I reversed the image and then placed it with the original. For an early attempt I was glad that it came out the way it did. I expect to improve in the future. is not Photoshop, but it is a very good tool.
