A spark spittin' Nunzilla + a flashlight + a long exposure + some photoshoppin' and you get this bit of weirdness. I suspect this will tank, but I had fun making it!

The Francis Bacon alluded to in the title is the Francis Bacon that painted some really interesting works esp. in the 50's ( The Popes Series ), not Sir Francis Bacon, Renaissance author, courtier, and father of deductive reasoning.

I got the brown, I got the brown! Obscurity rewarded! : )

just one last note...Nunzilla is one of those cool little wind-up toys...she was moving during the 8 SECOND exposure...breathe deeply...embrace the blur...not everything needs to be crispy...

I have to say that this silly image completely depended on the viewer knowing the work of Francis Bacon...I thought at least maybe one person would have gotten it...oh...and the blur was on purpose....OMG I suck...{{{giggles}}}

Sorry but to me this is a jumble of out of focus shapes. I'm not sure what you were aiming at here but it did not work for me. This is why I gave you a 3 rating.

Is that an angry nun or am I seeing things? How odd.
