Image From My Daughter

My 10-year-old daughter has been experimenting with photo editing software and has just emailed me the following.

Really, I could write an essay about it, but instead I'll just allow you to meet it on your own terms. Suffice to say that it has a remarkable ability to cause your train of thought to stall and your mind stop. A number of Zen Koans looked decidedly half-arsed in comparison.

I am very proud.


  1. Hi John, this is brilliant, a work of art! I've probably spent far too long thinking about it so that it now makes perfect sense - it was a meerkat, it was a photo of a meerkat, she edited it (if only the photoshop "pros" I work with could be bothered to play with opacity and blending like this!) and it's still there, but it's now a different picture of a meerkat. Except it's a meercat.

    As a comment on the photographic subject it's wonderful and I'm pretty sure my explanation of it is incorrect.
