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 distance, speed, focus, etc. before beginning to take on serious photography with my SX410.
Recently, I reviewed some of those old photo cards and noted the vehicular subjects could become possibilities for abstracts by squeezing the snaps into cropped portions that would produce partial views of traffic.
The result was another romp in the area of abstract photo art,
proving, once again, that imagination and the abstract are close relatives.
