Extracting the Abstract: Gallery in Color

Yesterday I met the weekly challenge in black and white.

Converting pics to black and white  helped them transform into ABSTRACT

Today I sifted through photos from nature and tried to extract the abstract.

  1. Upside down Monongahela River reflection in Autumn
  2. Bluebonnets and Paintbrush in a blur from the bus, Austin TX
  3. Lemon wedge
  4. Ed’s Lobster
  5. Puddle reflection
  6. Peeling Paint
  7. Homestead Grays Bridge upside down- definititely still literal.

So I guess I think turning the image makes them abstract?

Fun to play with bits and pieces of photographs, like a jigsaw puzzle.

  1. If we are voting, I vote for number 2. But they are all great. I just like how the colors blended.

  2. You did! And rather beautifully too. 🙂 I haven’t had time to look at the weekly challenge yet this week but now that I’ve seen it here I have the very thing. I won’t be posting though, or I’ll never get my walk done. 🙂 Happy Sunday, Ruth!

    • Thanks Sylvia. I don’t shoot abstracts but was able to create some from my archives. Loved your monarch flower.

Hope writing a comment today is not a major hassle.....I appreciate hearing from you when you have a minute.
