I also am really pleased when, in the comfort and confines of my own home, I find a portal into another world. Often this happens while I'm accidentally staring through the "lens" of my iPhone or just off in space. I see what's in front of me, a "first look", and am struck by or find some detail of it beautiful or interesting. I take a photo of this "second look".
Later, while messing around with the photo, I wind up with an image that makes me feel like I've seen even another dimension, a "third look" at what I walk by every day. I am so happy in these moments of insight and recognition.
In case you're curious I started out with an iPhone image, processed it in FilterMania, then Instagram, then PicGrunger then Filterstorm.
