At the Hagiwara Japanese Tea Garden I photographed the Koi (which are of the Carp genus) with the idea of having some Photoshop fun.
My thought with the collage you see below was to recreate a symmetrical surface division sketch by M.C.Escher. This proved to be harder to execute than I expected, even considering that I had Photoshop’s rotation and reflection tools at my disposal (and I didn’t have to draw each individual element). The pattern I ended up with is interesting, but it doesn’t have the effect I had previsualized.
