Here are some of Mick’s recent photos “Smoke Trails”. Mick has added is a mirrored effect that gives them a kind of “organisms from another dimension” appearance or something like those ink blots some psychologists use. They appear to me like psychedelic jelly fish. When you were a kid laying on your back looking at the clouds, you could make out different shapes with your mind’s eye to be faces, creatures and things.

Nice work Mick! Thanks for sharing with us.
