Playing with time and photographs

For the second straight day my son and granddaughters didn't get off the ground in D.C. so I'm left with playing on the PC.

Alfred Stieglitz said. "The goal of art was the vital expression of self." He also said, "I do not object to retouching, dodging. or accentuation as long as they do not interfere with the natural qualities of photographic technique."

Well being a photographer and loving art I decided to add a personal touch to a few of my photographs to imitate art technique. Below are my first few tries.
