Superb image - love the halos of light around the objects, and the juxtaposition of what is definitely a clock with the orange object that is not obviously a sofa!

heheh. Thanks Sasha smiley - kiss

I went a bit bonkers last weekend, taking photos from the strange landscapes of home. Must do some more, in fact. Uh oh. smiley - rofl

The halos of light come from a setting on my little Panasonic Lumix compact. I think its designed to subtly sharpen the textures of a photo, but I always exploit to it to give me halos and funny clouds.

Planet orange sofa does look very peculiar. I think weird lifeforms might live on it. (Me smiley - rofl) If I was the clock I wouldn't try to land on it. Stay in orbit, clock!

I hope that you and the sofa realize that I honor both of you by raising your work to the level of high art -- well, if puns can ever be high art. smiley - winkeye

After I posted that, realized that Sasha might have initiated this thread.

i like the idea that you could overlay purple stripes on that sofa. Purple and orange is a nice combination.

Yes, I certainly value art from Planet Sofa as high art smiley - magic

Yes, purple and orange do go well together smiley - biggrin Nearly but not quite complementary colours.

If you look at something orange for a while (say, the bright orange petunia in the pot hanging form my porch railing) and then look away, you see bluish green. If you look at purple for a while and then look away, you see yellow. Yellow produces a bluish afterimage.
