Arboretum of the imagination: Meetings with impossible trees…

Arboretum of the imagination: Meetings with impossible trees…

Here’s a little experiment to complement my post on imaginary architecture, this time applied to the sculptural beauty of trees…

Photo Sans Frontiers

Meetings with Remarkable Trees, by Thomas Pakenham, is a fabulous book and it’s where I stole the idea for the name of this post.

Other than that, there’s no connection, except for the trees, obviously…

Just Jot It January: Day twenty one…

image

I’m just jotting a quick update for today’s JJIJ post, because I’ve just received yet another award nomination and I’d like to be able to do it justice in its own post later on.

So…

Since I told you my exciting news the other day, about being given a second opportunity to have my work published, I have sent in a story that I wanted to include in Stories In Green Ink, but which was too long to fit the submission criteria.
Well, I heard back from the publisher yesterday that it has been accepted. Yay!

Not only that, but I also managed to sort out the problem that some of my American readers were apparently having with finding the book on the US Amazon site.
I got this response to my e-mail;

“Hello,

I checked our US website and can confirm your Kindle book is indeed live and buyable at a list price of $6.99.

Please be assured that the book can be downloaded to all Kindle devices and applications.

If you still think they didn’t receive the correct version, you can ask them to contact our customer service at this toll-free number, 1-866-216-1072 and they will be able to push the content to you.”

So now you know.

But if you’d like to go directly to the right page, here are those links in full:

U.S. readers go HERE for both formats.

U.K. readers go HERE for Kindle or HERE for paperback.

And, just in case you think I’m only interested in plugging myself, (like the blogslut I most assuredly am) here are a couple of random artistic oddities I made.

Picture this: Deep Dream…

I’ve already posted a selection of pictures that have had the Deep Dream treatment, (photos that have been uploaded to Google’s open source artificial neural network, allowing sleeping computer servers to “dream” about them) over on Photo Sans Frontiers, but I haven’t been able to stop playing with it since, so here are ten of the best of the rest.

As before, bizarrely mis-shapen dogs feature prominently. What is it about computers and dogs?

No people were in the original picture, just flowers.

Canine horticulture.

Bird dogs.

There’s no way that I can avoid playing out with this I’m afraid…

Pictures of impossible buildings…

Whilst going through the hundreds of photos on my Facebook photography page (for the showcase post that IS coming soon, honest) I got sidetracked.

Yes, ok, that’s not really a surprise, I’ve got the attention span of an ADD magpie in Aladdin’s cave, but by the time I’d managed to tear myself away from my latest flash of inspiration, I’d come up with enough new ideas to warrant posting them here.

So I’d like to present you with a small collection of imaginary architecture, all composed from photos I’ve taken of local buildings, all of which are now more fantastical than functional.
