Gallimaufry#130

Just a gallimaufry of AI-generated photos, real photos and ramblings πŸ“Έ
Froggies


CHINESE PAVILION

I love Chinese pavilions for their elegant architecture and tranquil ambiance.
Imagine this:  Amidst the tranquil haven of a Chinese pavilion, mice gather in playful camaraderie, their tiny paws maneuvering mahjong tiles and chess pieces!


FROM THE TRAVEL ARCHIVES

Pizza chiosco, Pisa 2023

Picture this: in the quiet hours of the night, after the crowds of tourists have vanished, a wee chiosco appears, rolling up to the deserted Spanish Steps. As if on cue, all the mice emerge from hiding to party!


ARCHWAYS

There's something profoundly captivating about archways and the way they frame people or views. 


It's fascinating to think about the lives and stories that must have passed through those entrances centuries ago.
I like to imagine that under the ornate archway of some monastery somewhere, a mouse and his singing buddies make the sacred place his concert hall.
This archway, with its intricate carvings and history etched into every stone, has the perfect acoustics for their little concert.

We stumbled upon this curious Taiwanese-style hotpot restaurant with a name that literally translates from Chinese as "God's Delicious Hotpot". Haha, no  blasphemy intended, but I think even the Almighty needs a good meal in Malaysia sometimes!

  1. The serenading mice are so cute. Archways are beautiful.
    Portals to other worlds? :)
    Hot pot and a grill. The best of both worlds.

  3. I agree, those mice are so darn cute and the food looks great. I sure could enjoy some pizza if I weren't allergic to cheese and all dairy.

  4. The pictures of the monastery show it is a beautiful place to visit. I also enjoyed the AI-generated images of the mouses. My favourite is the image of the chiosco and mouses below the Spanish Steps in Rome.
    Nice post!

  5. Dearest Veronica,
    Lovely images and I love the final one with the mousies best—probably because of the accordion?
    Oh, the wrong signage we have encountered so often while in Indonesia but Meal and Female is a good one!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  8. It looks like you're creating a children's book about the lives of mice after hours in various spots. That would make a cute book.

  28. Your little mice are adorable -- AI made your creation come to life! But it did make it easier to tell which pictures were AI generated and which were your real memories. >... I agree about the food you showed -- it always looks so delicious. Of course even the Almighty would love it.

  29. The archways are wonderful framing devices, Veronica Lee, but then you already knew that! The mice are cute Ai generated images but I am so not a fan of using AI at least on my own blog. You have definitely gone with a theme here and interspersed these images with ones you took, which I did enjoy seeing.

  30. As always, you manage to tell some funny stories with your mice in the AI photos. I love archways too, and I can also think of how many people have passed through them over the ages! Happy Sunday!

    I love the segment about archways. I am attracted to them.

  40. Thank you for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2024/06/play-ball.html, but I find myself increasingly concerned about misuse of AI. Can we trust photos any more? Yours are a work of art, but I wonder about some of the ways people may manipulate reality with this technology.
    Of course I'm an old fart...
