"Creativity is contagious…"

I was sifting through some of today’s #macromonday  postings over on Google+ and got inspired … realized I had a macro image I had done nothing with … and then got a little carried away with the editing.This photo (with added quote) is the result. I thought it was fitting under the circumstances. :)

For the editing, I mostly used +onOne Software to add the texture and coloring, and then pushed it over to Photoshop for some final tweaks and to add the quote. I also duplicated and flipped the whole thing to give it a mirror-effect and turn it into a horizontal (which tend to look better on +Google+ than verticals, IMO).

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

    I just realized +Albert Einstein is on G+ … probably should tag him (since I used one of his quotes). ;)
