Does these little epiphytes ever dream of being a pineapple?

Hi Viewfinder...excellent artistic post-processing! Love your commentary below your title...remind's me of Philip K. Dick's novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" I suppose if they have soul, they would. B-)

@{H} creatives: Thanks {H}... glad you like the way I tinkered with this image; I enjoy playing around with some of the settings on PS7 and I have an old Roxio program that can sometimes do some interesting things to images. As to the commentary I added, yes I suppose this was an offhand salute to the "Androids" novel -- although I had either Ray Bradbury or Isaac Asimov in mind, I think... [:^D

@HorseRotorVator: Thanks for the encouragement. As for pineapples growing, I'm waiting too. Pineapples are not only photogenic, but delicious when grilled...
