ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER "C"


ABC Wednesday Letter "C" is for CINDERELLA. I took this picture at Disneyland a while ago. It's actually a picture of pictures. People sent in thousands of snapshots of themselves and the artists at Disneyland created pictures of all of their characters from them. I found it so fascinating to stand back and see the whole picture and go up close and see all the individual ones.
Be sure to enlarge this one to see the snapshots up close.

I think you can get software to do the same thing with your own pictures

RuneE said...

A Very good C. Often you have to step back quite a bit to get both the whole picture - and some of details.

Paulie said...

That is a neat entry for C. I have done something similar online with a photo of a flower where they use photos of people to produce the shading.

Ida said...

Creative and beautiful C! :)

Susan said...

confusing but charming

Oh my. This is nice.

You know, year ago this was all done by hand, so to speak. You had to go through individual photographs and pick and choose the dark ones the light ones and all the other ones. Then you had to place them on a kind of template of the picture you were making.

Nowadays, however, this is all done by computers so it isn't hard at all. You just need the photos.

So it kind of takes the wind out of the sails but it is still nice to see.

I can't think of anything better suited for the entry C.

This is really an amazing picture. I would never have envisaged making a pictur from other pictures. Btw Filicity thinks blogging is the greatest she keeps attacking my fingers wheen I type, which does not make the job easy.
