"While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see." - Dorothea Lange

Abstract Photo Monday


These two images are a repost from my sketch blog, Big Gay Dragon. I am declaring Monday on this blog abstract photo Monday. I have accumulated many photos of just light trails, colors, shape, etc. Many of these photos have come from trying to capture the action and movement of a live rock concert, but not all. Some were taken at night and meant to look like something else entirely, but came out looking appealing to me in a non traditional way. I have become drawn to these photos. I enjoy getting lost in the colors and following the patterns of light. I hope you'll come to love staring into them as much as I have. If you are so inclined, please post a few of your own and link back here. Maybe we can get something abstract going. If they are completely uninteresting and uninspiring to you, feel free to let me know that as well. I am fully prepared to take all forms of criticism.

cool abstracts! I particularly like the top one, but they are both nice. Nice colors, too.

In the top one, what if you moved the blip on the right up just a little?

Love this idea. I've got quite a few abstract lite photos, too, most done unintentionally, a few on purpose! I'll post a few on my blog, too!

Thanks again for the challenge, Andrea! I posted a couple of pics to my blog with this theme:

Fun and very creative.
