Playing with (Photo) Toys: Pixlr-o-Matic

It's time to come clean...

You know how grown-ups secretly love to play with kids' toys?  (Let's face it, those wooden train sets are fun.)  Well, it's the same way for me with photo "toys", even though I'm a professional photographer and I'm supposed to be grown out of those things.  ;-)

One I've just heard about via Google + friend Steve Johnson is Pixlr-o-Matic.  Of course, like a kid in a toy store, I rushed over to try it out.

Because I like to be different, I decided to run the same picture through twice, effectively adding two layers of Pixlr-o-Matic goodness to it.  Is the result something I would submit to a high-brow gallery?  No.  Was it fun to make?  You bet!

(see my original, straight-out-of-the-camera, photo here, for contrast)
