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 in it totality. A riverbank tree with its branches becoming laden with Spring buds is the subject, framed in front of the Maumee River.
Simple abstracting was achieved by using a different point of view from which to photograph the subject.
