Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic

A photograph itself is a kind of Magic. In its simplest form, it captures a moment gone and preserves a place and time unchanged on its two-dimensional plane. The mechanics of that alone are an astounding feat, where the goal is the image produced and the subject is clearly framed and readily recognised.

The image, I have selected for the challenge uses some AI trickery. I took a photo of the fountain in Pushkin Square, Tbilisi and transmogrified it using Prisma, an app on my phone, which sends the image to the Prisma servers and returns the image altered in a chosen style in around 5 seconds…all very clever, all slightly magical….the “filter” or style I chose is called “electric”.
