Fantasy Art

"Magnetic Storm" Roger Dean and Martyn Dean. Crappy photo due to the flash, but it is interesting the effect the flash has on the artwork itself. One could muse that the existence or absence of the flash 'creates' art as in a different perspective of the same subject.
Same shot without the flash. Click on both pics to see the differences.
"The Studi"
I took all of these photos in my 'cave' at night, so the lighting was terrible and the flash kept insisting on being a part of the process. With the flash turned off the result is a less than defined image. I had to run all of these through image software to make them as presentable as they are now. I had a long day and this was last thing to do on the list.
This book is where most of the art that follows came from.
"The Flights of Icarus"
Reminds me of a girl I used to date...
I wanted to live next to this guy. How cool would that be?
This one always made me think of certain Black Sabbath tune.
This one reminds me of star wars.
This is just a bunch of crabs. ,

Party Time

In the beginning, there were 250 lbs. of crawfish.
The kids were very interested in 'helping' me 'clean' them for the boil.

Cleaned and ready.
Glad I'm not a crawfish.
We managed to get a decent sized batch. Most of the bags were about 18 - 20 per pound with maybe 20 dead per bag. Not too bad really.
Yummy and gone.
How many can you eat? We got plenty.
Another pile ready to boil.
Oh man. Gimme some rice, couple jalapenos, piece of cornbread...
We're lucky people.
Throw in some corn after you get the crawfish out. The water is tasty and ready to flavor the corn.
This went on for some time.
If you've never been to a crawfish boil, I highly recommend it. ,
