One of the special lenses that my husband has for his camera is called the “Dragonfly”—when you look through it,each shape repeats itself again and again like in a kaleidoscope. I looked at some of my pictures with it and it had an incredible effect. It gave me ideas for hundreds of pictures! I picked up one of them and repeated a rectangle 39 times,changing only the colors. Half of the picture goes from light to dark,the other half from dark to light. The little image here has lost its color;to see what it really looks like,please click on it to see the image in much better color.
