Playing with abstracts…

Meaningless beauty; the mysterious art of abstraction.

Photo Sans Frontiers

Here are a few experiments in abstract art, using random shots of industrial components from work.

Just because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Update:Mucking about with candles and sparklers on Audrey’s birthday,(with full safety precautions, obviously) I made some more abstract images that I rather like:

More from The Mound…

I thought I’d share some colour versions of the pictures I used in the Cosmic Photo Challenge yesterday, showing the recent additions to our garden from the weekend. These are shared from my photographic blog, Photo Sans Frontiers, please pop over and visit if you haven’t checked it out yet…

Photo Sans Frontiers

The burst of Summer over the weekend generated a flurry of activity in our rented garden, including adding some colour to The Mound.

I know I’ve posted many photos our one, sloping corner of unpaved loveliness, but it is interesting to watch an island in a sea of patio slowly evolve.

We also got a great deal on some planters on Sunday(because they’re actually cheap galvanised buckets from Homebase) and by the end of the afternoon the garden looked like this…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning (or afternoon, depending on your timezone) and welcome to this week’s installment of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with today’s theme chosen by me.

I picked Contrast, giving you free reign to choose your subject and interpret the prompt pretty much however you like.

For my contribution, I’ve taken yet more photos of our ever-evolving Mound; the focal point of our garden and the subject of the weekend’s work in the sunshine. I’ve chosen to use black and white, to highlight the difference in the texture and form between the various plants and the decorative features.

Check out K’lee’s photos of the day, HERE.

*****

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Time for your weekly showcase of inspired images, from K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge. This week we had K’lee’s prompt;

“Below, you’ll find five ways Friday is said around the world. Your task- should you accept it- is to choose one of the five, then with the help of the chosen country, create a post and a photo related to what people in that country equate to Friday!


Swahili – Ijummaa


Croatian – Petak


Turkish – Cuma


Hausa – Jumma’a


Indonesian – Jumat” 

Well, I don’t mind telling you that this one stumped me completely, so I’ve chosen to interpret Friday as being the end of the week for most people, whatever their country, a time they can relax with friends and family.

Fortunately I was on holiday this week, back in Sussex with Rhonda and Audrey, visiting old friends and family and taking more than one stroll on Ashdown Forest, (land of Winnie the Pooh) including a visit to Pooh Bridge where I took these five photos on, you guessed it; Friday

I’m calling this one “The hummingbird and the elephant”, for Linda G Hill’s amusement.

You can find K’lee’s photo HERE.

Update: Couldn’t resist adding this one to the mix, it has so many layers to it, I had to include it…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

I’m on the road today, heading back up to Sussex to visit friends and family, so I’m hoping that this scheduled post publishes itself on time.

I’ll check in later anyway, to add a link to K’lee’s photo, but until then, here’s my contribution to this week’s prompt; Water. 

These sprinkly sculptures were all made using just a hose pipe, with a garden fence in the background, (plus a side order of digital mucking about, obviously) see what you think…

Here’s K’lee’s photo for the day.

Ok, so now let’s see your wet and wonderful offerings.

Go on, splash out on the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, but since it’s Monday again, let’s get on with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge for this week.

K’lee’s prompt on Friday was; Shadows and silhouettes, so I’ve picked a couple of old favourites taken by the river Taw for the silhouettes and two shots of shadows cast by metal furniture on the deck of our local pub.

Here’s a link to K’lee’s images for today.
Now, let’s see what y’all have to offer..

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Welcome to metallic Monday on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I chose the theme for this week’s challenge on Friday and it was simply this; Metal.

Whatever metallic materials you wish to use for your photographic subject are acceptable; shiny, rusty, intricate, industrial, sculpted, molten, anything you like, as long as it’s metal.

I went the lightweight route, using aluminum foil in varying stages of scrunchiness, under different light sources and with a selection of coloured surfaces to reflect from, to create these artistic images.

K’lee’s photo for today can now be found HERE.

Now, it’s your turn.
