 I don't know how you do it. I can barely see it at this scale, but it is extraordinary in thumbnail.

 Wicked Chel... master of the visual double-entendre! That startling eyeball is NOT there 'til it's thrust on us. I'm convinced you set your monitor 20' away and squint!

 Hey Q: The opposite! I blow everything up as big as I can on a teensy laptop screen, and fuss with details until I notice that continued fussing is making it worse, then stop. I lost my glasses years ago so maybe that would account for your thought.

 BofQ, Bobby Fischer died several years back, and his last years were pretty grim, as his political opinions got him ostracized and imprisoned. Iceland (site of his historic chess match) took him in as an exile.

 Chelydra, the glass matter explains all. I too can't see anything at this scale, but I took off my glasses and - oplà! here he is!

 I have read that the fisherman had a tough time on earth.so what you caught too, must be his young hope. somehow.and that was-is so easy to see.just as love for art can make even a horror when a ship wrecks be more than chaos and sorrow.more than death

 Lol, chel.. I deliberately didn't comment on your pictures earlier, although I gazed at them at length - and yes, they're truly awful ;)

 Truly awful? Not pretty, granted... but the way this comes together when seen in thumbnail is brilliant, especially that eye!
