electric grid 2

The view through under-deck latticework is the subject of this deliberately blurred abstract photo.

electric grid

This is another photograph exploring the abstract qualities of under-deck latticework.

Today I also updated the image in my April 6 post, to improve the cropping from the original square composition.  It sometimes takes me awhile to see these things.

It wasn't actually windy in the garden.  It was just the camera movement.

Blue adirondack chairs, latticework, and a yellow wall combine to create another imaginary city scene in this exterior/landscape abstract photograph.

night city 2

Here is another latticework scene from K's place.  This landscape abstract photograph was taken a week ago this last Monday.

the red jacket

In another abstract photo, seen through one of K's garden gates, blurred colors look like a person in a red jacket.  But there wasn't actually a red jacket in the scene.

night city

In another blurred exterior abstract photo from last Monday at K's home, daylight and bits of garden glimpsed though an under-deck lattice take on the look of a city at night.

in the courtyard

Here is another exterior image from K's place.  A painter has set up in the courtyard.  I deliberately blurred the photograph with camera motion and zoom.

I updated this image on April 20 to improve the cropping.  I often find that some time goes by before I see how a composition can be improved.

In case you're wondering, the original version is below:

gate detail

This is another landscape/exterior abstract photo from Monday's get-together.  The subject is a detail of one of K's beautiful garden gates.

You can see a digital painting of the gate in question at M's art blog.

more landscape abstracts

The local art group met at a painter's home studio in Port Townsend yesterday.  I took the opportunity to continue my series of landscape/exterior photos pushed towards (or perhaps beyond) the abstract by using slow shutter speeds combined with camera movement and/or lens zooming.

This one, clearly, is from the garden.
