Well… what can I say… Some things simply look better from up close…

To get away (at least temporarily) from the single colored landscape we’re vacating in at the time I thought I’d throw in a little bit of Photoshop.
Photography basis, with a twist.

Formerly known as "tulip"

The procedure is very simple. Open up a (suitable) image in Photoshop. Go to View -> Show -> Show Grid. Make a selection on the background layer. You can either copy-paste it onto a new layer or work on the background layer (not recommended). Free transform (Ctrl (PC) or Cmd (Mac) T), flip horizontally or vertically, depending on the direction of your selection. Repeat with equal spaces between the sections. And that’s it 🙂 Creative variations/combinations possible.
Gives some funky effects if you have the right picture.
