I selected some photos to submit to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Abstract.
Ben Huberman, WP editor, asks us to turn the concrete and familiar into something new and mysterious.
‘This week, find your own (proverbial?) chestnut tree. Point your camera at something familiar and turn it into something else. Whether it’s a wall in your house, a friend’s arm, or a billboard seen from afar, we may or may not recognize what it actually is. But we’ll certainly discover something else about it in the process.”
My first option is this exquisite flower (featured image), which got my undivided attention when I got a bouquet of flowers yesterday from a very dear friend. I don’t know its name, so if you know it, please leave the information at the comments thread.
The second image is a flower which was in the same bouquet. I shot them with macro lens, handheld, knowing that I wouldn’t be able to get a sharp image, so I could play with some intended abstraction.
I selected another photo which I shot from a moving car at high speed in the highway. It was a beautiful night and whilst I tried to shoot the moon, I got more interested in the ghostly effects of the trees…
Lastly, I shot a battered piece of wood.
