Abstracts – Surface, light and texture..

It’s Friday! 😀

Some more experimenting for me this week – with surface, light and texture – my subjects in these experiments being, hard fences and soft seed heads.

These images are all so abstract and not so much about the subject matter.  I’m ok with that – this time 😉

It’s become more about shapes, tones and textures, due to light (or lack of) and depth of field.  I find that very appealing.

The fences were photographed in black and white – Wow, I love that!  It’s how I learnt to photograph and I think I ‘see’ better in black and white 🙂

Also, the seed heads were photographed in the morning light and the fences were captured in the late afternoon light.

I’m having so much fun experimenting again.. I’d like it to be something I do more often.  Fun!!

Well, I think that’s it from me for this week… so I hope we all have a great weekend!! Enjoy yours when it comes around.

Oh, one more thing… I want to give a big Shout Out to Stacy!

Stacy hosts the After Before (AB) forum – another fun editing challenge and this Friday (8am EST), the AB challengers are participating in a very special 6 month anniversary event, where they are all editing the same image – pop on over to check it out!  I’m going to!

New players are most welcome to join the AB forum, regardless of skill level and Stacy is a very fun host 🙂

See you Monday for week 3 of November’s One Four Challenge!! 😀

  1. Very nice images, Robyn, I love the barbwire fence with the shallow DOF. You’ve changed your theme, too – all new look! 🙂 Being a user of Twenty Fourteen also, my only reservation about it is that the posts are narrow…


    1. Thanks Chris – I really enjoyed these!
      Yes Twenty Fourteen is a great theme and while I do like a bigger image… I always scroll out to smaller or thumb nail to get an overview of an image when I’m working on them, (like standing back from an artwork) so I wonder if this works the same. I hope people will ‘click’ 🙂


    1. Thanks Cybele… I found my creative space in these – doesn’t happen often enough and there are always distractions – but hey I really enjoyed capturing them 😊
