Swishes and Swirls

Just having fun today. These are all pictures of swirly details from my afternoon walk, but then I played with them a bit.

No official game here at all, but can you guess what each picture started out as?

I couldn't resist messing with the colors too.

I must come back and look at these again tomorrow - too weary tonight, I am going around in circles! They're intoxicating.g

Very nice photos!! Beautiful textures and designs--no matter WHAT they began as....ha ha!

Here are my guesses:

Sand on the bed of a shallow stream, leaves by the waters edge, an imprint (of a boot?) in the sand, dappled light through the leaves.

Am I close? :-)

RNSANE- Intoxicating! I like that idea. (well, not literally, but that my pictures made you feel that way)

Karen- I love textures. I should do this more often.

John- Here you go: sand on the bed of a shallow stream (you were right on!), foam collecting in a slow eddy of the same stream, a double knot on a fencepost, and clouds on a gray and overcast afternoon.

I'm glad you already answered these because I would have never guessed. The first two look to me like there are leaves in them. I like that third one because it makes me think of a satellite photo of a lost city or something.

Hi Ratty- Yeah, that third one reminds me of the old game Xevious.
