The flowing shapes and restful colours are gentle on the mind
I feel as if I'm floating like a little white feather
which brings me into this abstract scene.
When I see something which takes my breath away,
I know I want to capture it right away.
The precise focus of this image at close range makes it seem even more
abstract to me.
I'm attracted to the texture, to the curves and lines and to the glistening
Sometimes I think I can place or recognize something,
yet seeing it in a totally different context takes away my certainties.
The light colour blue feels dreamy and the shapes of the white areas
definitely feel 'floaty'.
I feel astonishment, enthusiasm and joy.
I'm in a totally different world when I look at this image.
Am I moving?
Is it moving?
Where am I?
Conveying essence and emotion.
Water is the very source of life.
It could be called the essence of life.
Wherever there is water, there are emotions.
There are tears of joy and tears of many other emotions
like sadness and relief.
This watery jewel I captured above says it all for me.
It radiates from the centre outwards and it touches me deeply.
allows me to concentrate on colour, texture and shapes
It allows me to go deeper.
I call this image: 'Essence of metal.'
I feel a dynamic energy.
The Essence of Wind
Since we cannot see the wind, but only know of its presence
by what we feel on our skin or what we see moving around us.
Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)
gives a whole new dynamics to the image
creating feelings of movement
which in this case, has created short bursts of energy, imitating the wind.
The colours blend together and the shapes evoke something special.
Eliminating all superfluous details to concentrate
on one particular element
which is the yellow pole and the green circle,
brings a sense of strength to the composition.
Abstract photography has taught me to capture the unexpected
and the details which are often overlooked.
The simplest of subjects in our everyday lives take on new meaning.
Recognizing abstracts has become an exciting new journey
which opens my horizons and takes me beyond my limits.
Suddenly, a whole new world opens up before me.
I shall continue to seek out abstracts because the whole experience
excites my senses and increases my creativity.
I become more daring by thinking outside the box.
I take a step out of my comfort zone
and see things as I have never seen them before.
It's an exciting journey.
