While in Alaska I was after eagles. I made thousands of eagle photographs. But I’m always keeping one eye open for something unique or special or just abstract. I love abstract photography. I play little games with myself wondering if people can guess what the object I’m shooting really is.
In this case, I came upon the harbor at sunset. The light was hitting this extremely colorful, rainbow-colored boat and the reflection caught my eye. The above photograph is the result. Would you have recognized that as a boat sitting in the water?
The dictionary says abstract is: “of or pertaining to the formal aspect of art, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms, etc., especially with reference to their relationship to one another.”
For whatever it’s worth, I think the image I made of the boat qualifies. How about you? Do you shoot abstracts?
