Sandstone Magic - Tad Bowman
Experience some hair color - fun, fresh, fanciful.
I love number one - the black and red, but it’s not my colors - I am liking number two a lot - red and purple - pagan and royal. Number three, is rockabilly chick.
Drenched in Colour - Poras Chaudhary
Holi got its name as the “Festival of Colours” from a legend in which the Hindu god, Krishna teasingly smeared colour over goddess Radha’s face in jealousy of her fair complexion. Today, the throwing of colour symbolises affection in honour of Krishna and Radha’s love.

HE DOES SOME WONDERFUL THINGS WITH COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY
The first one reminds me of a Carribean coral reef and the second is a cosmic galactic ocean of life.
Ferrofluid Water Colors
- "The colorful shapes, you sight in these image are about the dimensions of a thumbnail. They are conceived by blending ferrofluid with water color and putting it into a magnetic field. Ferrofluid is a magnetic solution with a viscosity alike to motor oil. When put under a magnetic area, the metal particles in the answer start to rearrange, forming the very dark channels and separating the water colors from the ferrofluid."
- Fabian Oefner’s Portfolio
I find these to be absolutely gorgeous and captivating - It may be the natural method of magnetism involved infuses the organic patterns of nature and the startling color combinations color that appeals to me. The beautiful color is subdued by the natural patterns.
Whatever it is, I will take a dozen! Love it.
It looks like a cosmic sea creature or a colorful planet all its own.

Ancient Egyptian Pigments Gets a Second Chance to Shine
February 22, 2013
Feast your eyes on ancient Egyptian art, and chances are you’ll be dazzled by its bright blue accents. Historians believe Egyptians got hooked on the color when they used lapis lazuli, a semiprecious stone from Afghanistan, to tint everything from frescoes to their eyelids. Since lapis was hard to come by, they sought artificial means of creating a bright blue hue and discovered calcium copper silicate, made by mixing and heating limestone, sand and copper. Later dubbed Egyptian blue, the vibrant chemical compound was manufactured in powder form at specialized factories where raw materials and ceramic vessels have since been unearthed.
ART & SCIENCE - BY FABIAN OEFNER
Art and science normally have a different approach, and an alternate means for looking at the world. On one hand, you have art, which is usually an emotional reaction to the world; on the other hand you have science, of which its results are a rational reaction to our surroundings. What I am trying to do is do bring these two opposite views into one. My images should communicate to both the viewer`s heart as well as the viewer’s brain.
