The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes
“The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes” from the lyrics Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by Lennon-McCartney.
This is one of my IPhonography images. I photographed the building in NYC in the Tribeca area with my IPhone X and fell in love with the topography on it “Brush Up Business with Paint, Paste, Paper, Push”. The woman is a vintage image I colorized and retouched. She is actually sitting in a landscape I photographed at my friend, Rich Lewis’ workshops, in the Pine Barrens. I use a couple of great Iphone/Ipad apps to combine different images, colors, textures and effects. The apps that really get this surreal effect are the Diane app and Dicem8. Totally destructive apps that go in and rip apart the pixels. They take me a couple of days to get the image where I want it. As soon as I saw these colors and the sky I thought immediately of the great Beatles song from the Sargent Pepper’s Album “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”. I didn’t have the album when I was a kid but my sister, Pat, did so I would sneak in her room and listen to it when she wasn’t home!
