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

Emblazoned on the coffee cup is the statement: “Just sittin’ here… ’til the caffeine kicks in…” In the upper right-hand corner of the photo, the word “caffeine” is undisturbed because the prism’s curved edge didn’t cover the cup in that… Continue reading Coffee Cup in Prism

Prisms and Glass and Abstract Photo Art

ABOVE is an example of what a magnifying glass can create for the camera to capture. The glass has been laid on top of a small carousel horse statue. Beneath the horse itself is the round glass top patio table in my tiny kitchen. Glass on glass is a wonderful abstract distortion instrument that can… Continue reading Prisms and Glass and Abstract Photo Art
