Entry: "The wormhole in the backyard"

The wormhole in the backyard

This photo was featured in an early post waay back in April of 2009; post number eleven, to be exact. The post, with its accompanying photos, is one of my personal favorites. Click on this link to take a trip back in time for a bit of Alice-in-Wonderland style fun. I had to reprocess the photo as the entry rules insist on a minimum of 800 pixels on the long side. Yeah, so I boosted the contrast a bit more as well. Yeah, that's a poppy seed head in the middle. Trippy, huh?
