Abstract – Week 1/52 of 2014


Abstract

Why do I put myself through it? In 2012 and 2013 I successfully completed a 52 challenge and I vowed that this year I would take a break….and yet, here I am again. Only this year I have made it more difficult because I am taking part in a themed challenge.

This weeks 52 of 2014 theme is Abstract and hopefully this photograph will fit the theme.

    I actually like abstract photography as I hope it does at least show I have a little bit of the artist in me! Take a look at Mary Mansey, http://marymanseyfineart.com/ she was very helpful when I was taking some photography exams and was looking to submit some abstracts, which I did reasonably successfully🙂 Good luck and I’ll watch your blog with interest in 2014.

      It’s not something I’m really into but it was the first theme for the challenge. I had a look at Mary’s sit and I was quite surprised at some of the photographs she classed as abstract, I suppose it’s all down to interpretation.

      It’s the panel from a tissue box.

    My abstracts tend to happen by accident. They can be quite compelling. I think yours fits the bill nicely and by intent!

      I’m not really into abstracts, but that was the challenge for this week. Must admit I did have fun just using my little P&S to get the photograph.

    Uh, yes. Abstract art. It’s lovely if one happens to like it and I realize that not everyone is an admirer. I fall into the category as someone that does not care for abstract. But- it sure is an eye catcher with the hearts and I wondered how you achiveved this shot., Then I read your reply that you photographed a tissue box. You are resourseful for sure.🙂

      It’s not my thing, Yvonne, but that’s what the theme was this week. To be honest I was starting to panic. I’d committed to taking part and hadn’t found anything worth photographing. Then I just took my little P&S camera and did some close-ups of common objects in the house. I,liked the hearts so that became my entry..

      Hi Ruth, Happy New Year to you. I’m beginning to wonder if I’ve bitten off more than I can chew with this project….
