"Transmutation" is actually a fluffy-clouds-in-sky photo. I liked the two different types of "fluff" but the picture just did not do anything for me at all. So I fooled around with color, contrast, and focus. And these results I sort of like. Lots of different associations to its images. One of them to the stylized clouds in Tibetan paintings. Also to surf retreating from beach's edge, and to the transmutation of lead into gold that is sought after in alchemy. So I'm glad I didn't give up on this initially "blah" photo.
Just recalled that today is Thanksgiving (for decades holidays have not been major deals in my life). However I do hope everyone has had a wonderful day. And lest I come across ungrateful, I'll simply add that I do recognize there is much for which to be thankful, which I am.
