You found them WTG Laura. This brought a smile to my face.

Laura this was the third and last time we drove by Bow lake. The water is that beautiful blue you always see. Because the Bow Glacier spills into it bringing with it the minerals that make the lake the color we enjoyed so much. I learned that the color all depends on the angle of the sun. When the sun gets high noon or front lighting to enhance the colors then you will see it. When up close the water does appear to be clear to some extent. This was early morning and not a leaf was turning. Couldn't ask for better conditions. I actually felt God was looking over my shoulder all the time, we has such perfect weather. Guess I should have sent this by another message, kind of long. You know me old windy Ron

If BP ever gave out an award for the most creative look, this would be a grand prize winner girl. What a hoot, what a creative mind, love this amazing look using the gap in the wall to give us that feeling that we were looking through it to see the people. It is amazing what one can do when they have your kind of talent and imagination. Beautiful work of art my friend.

I am siting here laughing! I have been waiting for you guys to arrive! HAHAHAHAHA! I laughed as I was making this one. See what long winters and cabin fever can do? (Still laughing!)

Oh....tears..Well..ANYWAY this one was MORE than fun to make. The layered image of the two men was taken inside of an actual CAVE in Banff National Park so it gave me the perfect subject to work with to complete the illusion. :)

I had work dwork with the HUES to get it to math the brick as the cave was a different color. Have to use my healing tool to spread a little MORTAR around too! :D

ALL IN A DDR DAYS WORK!

Gord, GO TAKE A PEEK!

Yes Mr Tree. You are right. Without the little people the bricks would just topple down when bumped!

SSSKiki OF COURSE YOU CAN...but Mumj will have to use TINK DUST on you first to make you tiny! :)))

Thanks everyone. I am really enjoying your reactions to this one.

Frank, if this goes GOLD, send me your address. I'll send you some gold. It will be the same color as your heart!

Okay...Have I told you guys lately how much I love you???!!!

I am still smiling and laughing...Is photography supposed to be this much fun? Maybe we are supposed to be stiff and sober so we can market ourselves better???

NAHHHHHHHHHHHHH! THAT'S THE OLD WAY of doing things! The new way is to BE OURSELVES...and for SOME OF YOU... it's to admit you have ALSO SEEN the LITTLE PEOPLE! HA! (Oh, laughing too hard!)

LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Denny...the only POT OF GOLD I have ever seen here in my gallery are boxes of CHOCOLATES that bare that name. (FROM WAL-MART NO LESS)...but ONE DAY... Somehow, someway, I hope BP will show me another kind. :D If they do, I WILL SHARE THE WEALTH!

So stay tuned! All of you!

And thanks for the HUGE smiles tonight everyone!

Pommers, I just knew you were smiling - or even out-and-out laughing - every moment you spent on this! And your discussion thread confirms it!!
This is way too cute. I'm picturing you in mid-March, giving the "little people" some green outfits and shillelaghs (had to do a spell-check on that one!), and chomping on some Lucky Charms... I'm sure Denny (above) will agree.

Hey, -HI- Everybody! OM GOSH...Little green outfits? Do you think they'd go for it? I don't even know what shillelaghs are but I'd love to try and get the little people to wear them. WE CAN ALL WEAR HEM so they won't feel "DIFFERENT"! What do you think??? :D

Nancy...I love the little people now that I know where they are. I think a lot of you might be keeping your eyes open for your own now! :D HA! (It's cheap entertainment, anyway!)

(Uh oh! I just heard a mouse trap)...

Hi Patti! I KNOW! I KNOW! I am so glad I stopped at the dollar store to get a better pair of glasses. Who knows HOW LONG they have lived there going unnoticed!???

Oh....Theresa...That sounds so sad. WELL if you REALLY want to fit in with the CAVEMEN there, we'll start with your pinky finger and the rest of us will push! A little TINKER BELL DUST and Who Knows! :D

Thanks for the fun everyone. :)))

Hi Patricia! Thank heavens you took a break for all of that stuff to come on up to Canada and meet with us. It was such a delight. And you saw beautiful JASPER again, too! WE LOVED IT SO MUCH!

Yes! I had a blast making this image. Lol...That is my Brother and Dale in the grouting there. HA! We were actually in a CAVE when I took this photo. (Banff Cave and Basin!) I think that was on your list of things not to miss? :D Or maybe it was still closed down for upgrades while you were here??

Thanks for the fun visit. It was so wonderful to meet you and Roger in Banff!
