Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Abstract Photography

031715abstract_1This is the fourth week of my Just Some Fun Topics challenge series.

This week’s topic is Abstract Photography.  Here is a definition I found which may help you out.

Like abstract art, abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The subject of the photo is often only a small part of the idea of the image. Viewers may only know the essence of the image subject or understand it by what is implied. 

Often the image will not be a literal view of the subject itself. The subject tends to come second to seeing. The impact of aspects of the subject become a form of expressing the point. (definition found here)

If you are more of a visual person, go to google and search for “abstract photography photos”.  You be shown a variety of different photos that fit this category.

Feel free to dig around in your archives for photos if you don’t have anything knew you can photograph.   Most of all I hope you have fun.  This is definitely one where you can add photos of your favorite things.

I had a marvelous response from all of you on last week’s theme of Farm Animals.  Thanks everyone you always amaze and delight me.  I’m proud to announce our featured bloggers from last week’s topic. Their posts really grabbed my attention. Please check out their posts and congratulate them. Maybe you will be chosen next week.
