X is for X-ray Art

Happy Saturday!

Today's inspiration comes from a type of art that I learned of only recently but find completely fascinating and inspiring: X-ray art. Nick Veasey, a British photographer, works with images created from X-ray imaging, some of which he then manipulates with Photoshop to create some absolutely remarkable results. This video showcases some of his work. Enjoy!



My daily haiku is now up at the Pulitzer Remix site. You can find it here. National Poetry Month is nearly over, and I've been having such a great time participating in this project. Thank you to all of you who have been reading and commenting. Your support means so much.


Wishing you all a fantastic weekend. ☺

  4. That is simply amazing! I like the flower stem, looked a bit Asian in the way it was presented on the image. How do artists come up with these ideas? :-)

    Your haiku--lovely visual! That is my world right now, dandelions, as far as the horizon. :-)

  5. I have no idea where their ideas come from. I wish my mind worked the same way. :)

    About my haiku: Thank you! My husband wages war against those dandelions every year, but I think they look so pretty against the green grass.

  13. Wow - those are incredible! I have to say, whenever I get an X-ray, which isn't often, I like to look at the images. I like to see what I look like from the inside.

  15. Let me guess: he takes x-ray pictures and gives "glowing" reports. Well, perhaps not. But the pictures are intriguing, to say the least.

    Time to check the haiku.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
