These are the leaves of an octopus agave - a striking plant that lends itself to abstracts due to its twisted leaves.
Inspired by Andrew Williams' post in this group, I remembered another shot of mine from 2016 and thought it would fit the theme.
These are back in the Tango in early December (Pearl Harbor day). The white in the first one is ice. The EXIF data says these were shot about two minutes apart in mid-afternoon, so they couldn't have been too far from one another. I don't move that quickly. It's surprising that they have such different coloration.
It was bitter cold and very late afternoon. The Cape May lighthouse is in the distance. I climbed it once years ago but it is beyond me now.
I think this is abstract,or minimalist if it isn't, please tell me what it should be before you pull my post ,please.
Abstract of fresh rain on a classic car parked in Miami Beach. If you look closely, you can see my reflection in the chrome. :)
When I do my ink drops, there is a layer of oil on top of the water. The ink drops come to rest between the water and oil layers before falling through. These two images are taken of the top of the container rather than from the side as for the ink drops.
The big splotches of color are from drops that have poked through. However, the...
I took this shot during sunrise at Niagara Falls. The limited colors and contrast from the shadows to the orange glow worked well for me. I also love the rim light and small water drops.
Thanks for the invite to the group!
Abstract shot of a Bentley badge and interesting chrome grill spotted one day in Miami Beach.
For me, the minimalist photo consists in extracting the essential from a place, a character, an object or a situation. Summarize the subject to what emanates from it, what is its essence.
This photo shows a marine signal post off Deauville (France). The Channel's skyline crosses an object perpendicularly with a basic/simple geometry and...
With my tongue firmly planted in my cheek i looked for an image that i would think had something or rather nothing in the frame for a minimalist shot so i found this .....
Just to torture our group as we seem to have strong feelings on the topic ....?
went on a hike with a friend and was looking at closer details was curious if this is getting warmer or not ...for real this time ;)
Cape May, NJ, summer 2013, Nikon FM 210mm HP5+ (so don't ask to see the color version) about 7 AM still a bit misty. There was even less contrast on the unprocessed scan. Hardly any separation between the beach and the ocean.
Trying to create and artistic viex from an art construction. This sculpture does exist in Le Havre (north of France). Then I played with sun light at sunrise while sunrays hit thhe front of the scultpure. I played too with horizontal an vertical lines (sculpture, sea horizon and beach). However, the lines created by shadows are a sort of...
What else could I take pictures of while at a working farm today? :)
Any critique welcome.
The old closed military base nearby provides many sources of one of my favorite subjects - old walls! Here is a pretty one on which algae have greened up with the warming temperatures.
