This image was created by playing with a picture from my current green woman painting. The bright sunlight was shining across its surface catching the weave of the canvas, so I changed the colours slightly, then flood filled patches with rainbow colours. Leaving some areas normal and some changed. Finally running the image through the layout app to duplicate and mirror it. It ended up looking a bit like a cushion design or a tapestry.

A thin film
Smeared on tarmac,
Like oil and water
They cannot be mixed.
A molecule thick
Sliver of light.
Oil floated on water
Dropped and dripped.
A subtle play of shimmers
A gleam of glimmers,
A ray of sunlight,
Surface spread out like a pancake.
Pollution is washed away
Down drains, into soil.
The colour of oil…..
It’s turned up! I think it’s because I deleted about 80 pictures. The colours are not as intense as I saw them, but cameras and eyes work differently. If I had taken this on film I would have used iso 400 film (I don’t even know if they make it any more). It would have enhanced the depth of colours.
I took a beautiful photo of a very strong, bright, double rainbow, when we were in Llangollen earlier today. It was the best rainbow I’ve ever seen. But my mobile phone is not working well. If I put something on Instagram it duplicates the photo. It also seems to duplicate other photos. I keep having to delete lots of photos (which I did this afternoon after missing the spectacular rainbow). The photos are Mb not Kb. I wish I knew how to change the file sizes. I will have to find out how.
Saw a bright rainbow after a sharp rain shower today. Colours in the sky, split into a spectrum. Broken down town illuminated. Life watered / world renewed.
Oil, spilt, splits into colours an atom thick. Lying on moisture, floating on water. The iridescence is caused by defraction. Each colour is scattered like a rainbow. The gravel in the tarmac lifts and turns the sheen. Describe how the colours bleed across the ground.
