Seen on the walk to work, March 23, 2012, in the Voodoo Doughnuts No. 2 parking lot

If I sit on my first moring bus in a seat behind the bus driver, when we go by the Voodoo Doughnuts, I get a quick glimpse of the parking lot, then the building, then they're gone. Over a week ago, I spied this "monster," an imaginative creation which certainly matches the creativity with which the Voodoo Doughnuts people treat their doughnuts. DSC_0322ipiccy_crop_resize_neon_glow_overlay Ipiccy, cropped, resized, and altered with the effect neon glow, overlay. The base neon color is red, believe it or not. I like what happened with I chose overlay as part of the process! DSC_0322ipiccy_crop_resize_orton_effect Ipiccy, cropped, resized, and altered with the effect orton. Sort of made every thing smooth and creamy looking to me. I like this version, too. DSC_0322ipiccy_crop_resize SOOC, Ipiccy, cropped and resized only. So, here's the original image, just for you so that you can compare the alterations with it. And it lets you see that the "monster's" arms, head and body are made from vines! His eyes appear to be plastic tubs with the vertical slits either painted on or drawn on with Sharpie markers. His mouth and teeth must be some sort of plastic, too, or else the rain we've had lately would have already turned them to pulp. Day-glow orange is painted around his mouth. The car which looks as if it has come to either worship the monster or give itself up in sacrifice is some sort of Honda. Enjoy!
