Since I collect kaleidoscopes, I thought this would be fun to share with you:

I finally found the time to play along this month! The wings of a butterfly remind me of the view inside of a kaleidoscope, so, here is my entry...

So many great entries!

Stef, so cool that you actually had kaleidoscopes...love it!

Meg, great balloon shots, the balloon fest in my area was rained out this year so hopefully next year I will be able to get some shots.

Beautiful butterfly, Margie. I just started seeing them around here. We had rain everyday for almost 3 weeks, so there hasn't been much out and about to shoot.

Thanks everyone and keep em coming.

a bit of sun flair and some colors lit in the sun light reminded me of a Kaleidoscope.

This challenge has been lurking in the back of my mind but I hadn't seen anything that really spoke to me, as a suitable subject. Today, with the end of the month approaching, I decided to get proactive and if I couldn't find something I liked for the kaleidoscope theme, to take something I could find, and remake it closer to what I wanted. So here is my kaleidoscope entry, as much or more Photoshoppery as it is photography. Hope you enjoy, even if only for a laugh.






Here is the original picture I started with




If you'd like to see some of the other versions I went through before getting to the final one, you can check it out here.

This was my first weekend of shooting dog agility with my new camera - I loved it! It was so much better than working with my old camera.

This picture, with the variety of colors in the equipment, made me think of this month's challenge.
