Abstract Photography.

Hello World. 

It has been such a long time since I posted, I'm sorry about that. I seem to have lost my way for a while. I think that's all I wish to say about  it. However, here I am again and buzzing with new ideas for this AND the next post.

There is a brief introduction about Abstract Photography below, (from Wikipedia) Should anyone want to read more about the subject, the link below is to Wikipedia's page about it. I've tested it and it worked. If it doesn't work for you, just copy and paste it into your browser.

"Abstract photography, sometimes called non-objective, experimental or conceptual photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials. An abstract photograph may isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer, it may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects, or it may involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and /or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression. The image may be produced using traditional photographic equipment like a camera, darkroom or computer, or it may be created without using a camera by directly manipulating film, paper or other photographic media, including digital presentations."

My works below, variously fulfill all the criteria as stated above. As the concept of "abstract" in art and photography, inherently implies non objective images. I decided to to make no comments about the work, just add titles to them. To talk about, or describe them defeats the whole idea of non objectivity. You are all invited to make your own minds up as to what the images may be. I will just add, that these images are in alphabetical order. That way, even I had no choice in placing favorites in certain places, or grouping them in colour order. 

So here we go, stepping into the realms of the imagination. Have fun.

New post due soon

 Hello world. 

It has been such a long time since I posted, I'm sorry about that. I seemed to have lost my way for a while. I'm preparing a post at the moment. To give you something to look at, until I upload the next post, are four of my latest works, in art and photography. 


Devil's Hole

Abstract Images.


It has been months since I last put a post on, I'm sorry about that. Several issues and problems followed each other in the passed few months. There's no point me going over them, so on with this new blog post.  

As always, I shall only add comments about any work here, if I think they may be of interest.

This post is a mixture of my abstract digital art, photos and two photos which I printed using a Gel plate. This is a new technique to me. I'm still trying to get to grips with it. Gel plate printing has unlimited creative potential. 

The first image was inspired by me having looked at a lot of deep space images from NASA. I'm impressed by the size of the gas clouds out there. Many of them are busy making new suns and galaxies. This image is my artistic response to those star factories.

Star Birth 2.

The next two are taken from a set I made recently. I may show more from this set, in a later post.

Pop Art Machine Failure.



Canalside Trees.

Music For The Sea.

Blue Phase.

Rusting Cliff.

Hot Jazz.

Hurricane X.

Pop Art Flag.

Fishing Net Drying.

This next one is unusual for me. It's in pastel colours, I normally prefer vivid, saturated ones. It was an experiment, to see what I could do with a muted colour pallet. I rather like the result.

Bell UFO.

I was siting quietly, when this caught my eye. I love shadows, they are one of my favourite sources of inspiration. The shadow(s) I use, may not always be obvious in an image but will be somewhere in the finished result. With the photo below, I liked the interplay of the shadows cast by the net curtain, with the other elements in the picture.

Summer Cottage Window.

Look up paracellular movement, or paracellular transport online, if you'd like an explanation of it. 😊

Paracellular Movement.

Abstract Daffodil.

The following two images are printed from my photographs using a Gel plate.

Passage at King Cross.
(Not the London King Cross!)

Common Ivy Flower Buds.

Norfolk Dreams.

Moorland Footpath.

Lalabar Red.

Computer Has a Nervous Breakdown.

Stone Circle Energy Fields.

In the Heat of the Day.

The last image is for all you Doctor Strange fans. I've been a fan of his since he was first published, in 1968 and I'm still a fan. I'm eagerly waiting for the new Doctor Strange film to be released. 

The Eye of Agamotto.

We have reached the end of this post. I hope you enjoyed it. I promise that the next post will go online in a reasonable time.

Be kind to each other.
