Hi Eddie, I like the way you work your magic. How'd ya do it? Great picture. I love it. #5035

Thanks Donna. Of course the idea is from an Escher print... I took the first shot of my hand holding the ball. Then (the hard part) I shot myself THRU the ball, cut it out and pasted and blended onto the original ball..... Thanks for the response... I'm just beginning... #7202
