Abstracts and Birds

Snapping our feathered friends is one of my favorite pastimes of the photographic kind. With that logical photographic passion, along came the idea to shape my lens into an abstract catcher of those feathery friends. If one plays with focus and distance, the results can be fluffy, feathered abstracts. There actually were two geese in… Continue reading Abstracts and Birds

Vehicles In the Abstract

When I first purchased my Canon PowerShot SX410, which was a step up from my previous smaller PowerShot, I wanted subjects to snap just for practice. To do that, I planted a lawn chair near the busy street at the West end of our apartment yard and focused in on passing traffic. I learned about… Continue reading Vehicles In the Abstract

Lighthouses in Background and Foreground Abstracts

Lighthouses are a universal source for artists to express their photographic and artistic touches.

The first photo makes quite an eloquent abstract, while the other two pictures give unfocused abstraction in the blue sky. +++++ Credit: Photos from the personal… Continue reading Wings In the Abstract

Degrees of Distortion of the Heart-shaped Prism

The little heart-shaped, glass Prism with which I create many of the abstracts, here, at “Abstract Photo Art” can be demonstrated as a distortion artist by the three photos BELOW: The heart-shaped Prism consists of a glass, heart-shaped lid to a candy dish. In this photo (ABOVE), I placed the Prism lid on top of… Continue reading Degrees of Distortion of the Heart-shaped Prism

Simple Abstracting

The term “abstract” in any art form first conjures up in the mind an image of something very intricate and secretive, a view of some hidden meaning and ensuing consequences; mystery extraordinaire. But it doesn’t have to be that, at all. The image here, photographed through a bridge railing, is very simple, but certainly abstract… Continue reading Simple Abstracting
