For one of my recent contributions to the weekly Cosmic Photo Challenge on Diary of an Internet Nobody, I captured some car light trails and today I decided to use them for another abstract art experiment.
The glowing nature of the original images made for excellent source material, resulting in some rather awesome light sculptures, I hope you like them.
Well, I’ve got to find something to do on my day off.
This week’s challenge was set by K’lee and it has a distinctly circular theme…
Good afternoon and welcome to a bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,today determined by K’lee’s choice of theme; Circles.
I decided to go the simple route this week and use something we’ve been waiting for in the garden for some time; the first of our sunflowers to bloom.
Here are some circles within circles.
Right then, let’s see what you have to offer…
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or toK’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other…

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:
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;

Today’s smokin’ hot Cosmic Photo Challenge…
It’s a roasting hot bank holiday Monday, just for a change, so this week’s prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge couldn’t be more appropriate.
K’lee set the prompt for today’s challenge and it was as follows;
” ‘The Quest For Fire’. There it is. You can translate, create, or otherwise consider anything you want as it pertains to FIRE for this challenge…you can use barbecues, fireworks, or other sources of fire (responsibly!) in your um, ‘quest’ to enter this challenge. It’s completely up to you. “
I thought that, after last week’s close up experiment, I’d stay with small and modest and try to photograph the birth of a flame, so to speak.
There are a few attempts at capturing the point of ignition…
…followed by this composite image, complete with flaming thumbs.
So, fire up your imagination and show us…
