The edges of the hopscotch squares, the mirror of a childhood pastime. Many different countries play this game and the rules are slightly different in some, as a video I found explains.

One Four Challenge – May Week 4

Mirror with Mosaic Texture
Week 4 Processing

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. Mine was pretty mellow for the most part and I’m excited for the month of June to finally come about, which means vacations, great weather, baseball games, and the best time to go looking for a (real) job! I put real in parentheses because the one I have now is hardly suitable for long term and may only last another week.

My final entry for Robyn’s One Four Challenge takes one more radical turn. This week, I took two of my edits, combined them, and added a mosaic texture filter. There is also an Amber/Gold hue/saturation filter applied on top of the layers.

Here is a gallery of all four weeks. You can see how I’ve jazzed up the original with different textures and filters and diversified with different colors.

Now I here there is also a review for this challenge coming up. I’m not sure what else I would talk about with these pictures but I’ll be sure to stay tuned for more details.

Reflection

You step into an acquaintance’s house for the first time, and discover that everything — from the furniture, to the books, to the art on the wall — is identical to your home. What happens next?


Today I met my doppelgänger,
He was just like me in every way,
From the absent furniture,
To the red striped walls,
To the awkward TV entertainment cabinet,
Sitting in the fray,
His house seemed to be a complete carbon copy,
He even looked distinctly like me,
Had the same eye color (blue),
Wore the same clothes,
I wondered how coincidentally this could be
But then I realized I was looking into a mirror,
Reflecting my own image and the room behind,
But there was just one thing I didn’t understand,
How his hair seemed to be going blind
To my surprise, he then smiled back at me,
Simply waved,
And said,
“This is you in 35 years, don’t give up on your destiny.”
