Playing with abstracts…

Here are a few experiments in abstract art, using random shots of industrial components.

Just because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Update: Mucking about with candles and sparklers on Audrey’s birthday, (with full safety precautions, obviously) I made some more abstract images that I rather like:

K’lee’s offering will appear HERE when he posts later, but for now,here is KG’s entry.

Cosmic Photo redux…

I was rather pleased with the results of today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, especially since I used very little in the way of actual effects to produce the pictures that I posted, just a bit of tweaking.

However, due to my inability to leave a good image un-mucked about with, I’d now like to present my Cosmic Photo redux; a foil, if you will, to the six crinkly offerings from this morning.

Hold onto your eyeballs…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Today’s metallic mixture on the Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.(Archive)

Welcome to metallic Monday on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I chose the theme for this week’s challenge on Friday and it was simply this; Metal.

Whatever metallic materials you wish to use for your photographic subject are acceptable; shiny, rusty, intricate, industrial, sculpted, molten, anything you like, as long as it’s metal.

I went the lightweight route, using aluminum foil in varying stages of scrunchiness, under different light sources and with a selection of coloured surfaces to reflect from, to create these artistic images.

K’lee’s photo for today can now be foundHERE.

Now, it’s your turn.

Today’s Cosmic Photo Challenge really gives you a theme to build on…

Yes, I’m afraid it’s Monday again, but look on the bright side; Monday means it’s time for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today brought to you by the prompt, Architecture.

I was very gratified to see there was already a post waiting for me when I woke up this morning, and from a new participant, too! (You can check out Marie’s entry here.)
So I thought I’d make sure mine was posted early, giving you plenty of time to find inspiration.

You should know by now that I often like to go the abstract route with my challenge, this week’s being no exception.
I decided to go for an industrial look today, using this original photo of the skylights in the roof at work, taken at six this morning…

…and mucking about with it, until I arrived at this selection of strangely organic constructions;

Garden evolution…

It’s good to have a document of how our garden has grown from the unkempt and overgrown blank canvas that we began with, to the oasis of colour, form and texture that we have made for ourselves.

I’ve posted many photos of The Mound, both here and on Diary of an Internet Nobody, but it’s a continually evolving part of the garden which started off like this…

image

…a dead tree stump, overgrown with bluebells, wild garlic and long, unidentified green things, along with a few stems of ash and hawthorn (from seeds of the trees which used to overhang the patio).

And in the last week or so, leading up to today and the glorious bank holiday sunshine, the garden now looks this…

Finally; it might not look exactly like this, but here was Audrey’s fairy garden, beneath the fiery red canopy of the pieris, after a little creative manipulation.

I thought I’d go for a touch of surrealism for this week’s challenge, I hope you like it…

I’ve just about got time to fit in this week’s photo, before I get back to my packed schedule (the A-Z challenge continues later) so without further ado, here’s an odd little collage, which for obvious reasons is called “Duck tunnel”
