Day 306/365: Abstract

I stopped on my way home last night to shoot a tree full of white birds. I think they are some kind of egret but don’t quote me! Anyway, it was very low light and I didn’t have a tripod with me so I braced the camera as best I could on a fence post. Not surprisingly the image lacked sharpness and if it was only an hour earlier the light would probably have been amazing. I played around with it though and upon cropping I came up with this rather abstract photo. Instead of trying to disguise the noise and movement (which would be impossible), I suppose I have actually enhanced it to create a rather painterly effect. I know it will not be to all tastes, but I don’t mind it for something a little different, and that’s what’s good about doing a blog for yourself – I only have me to please and anyone else that enjoys what I do is a bonus! A really nice one I might add!

Day 257/365: Corrugated Corrosion

This corrugated iron on the little bell tower was so decrepit and textural that I had to shoot it close up. I guess it’s a bit abstract, but it’s something different!

Day 229/365: Crystal Sphere

This is another light shade from Paul & Di’s place. The light would really play through all these crystals and beads. They also make for quite a nice abstract type image!

Day 228/365: Chandelier

We had a very busy weekend just past catching up with friends & family in Sydney. Our first stop was in the inner city with Paul, Di & Jett to see their new place. A lovely old semi with some nice older style fittings, including these very majestic chandelier light fittings in two of the bedrooms. I couldn’t help but get the camera out for them!

Day 213/365: Washed Up

This is rather an abstract post, but I like it nevertheless. I took this photo of particles washed up onto the beach just because I thought the lines were interesting. But when I was looking at it just now, I can see the profile view of a long-haired woman wearing a beanie-type hat. It got me to thinking what others may be able to “see” in the wash up! Leave a comment if you dare…
