Man of Many Faces

I’m playing with a smart phone app, Prisma. Here are various treatments of the same photo that I manipulated earlier (using MS Paint) to wash the background with a “psychedelic” memory; subsequent to the MS Paint manipulation, I used Prisma to radically alter the new image.The treatments say different things to me, as I’ve tried to explain with the captions.

Face of stone.

There is a crack in everything.

Just a fuzzy memory.
