Abstract- Weekly Black & White Photo Challenge

Tuesday 23 July 2013
Week 6 : Abstract

Abstract photography is a process of using different shapes, lines, curves and patterns combined to create an image and rules, such as composition and accurate focusing hold no values. With no true meaning or no clear subject involved, the abstract photo does not necessarily mean the same thing to everyone. It leaves more to the imagination and aids us to concentrate on feeling and thought rather than the whole subject. Patterns and Close-ups of flowers and other plant life make for great abstract images.  There are no guidelines for creating good abstract photography.  Just use your imagination along with the natural world to create your master piece.

For this challenge i have converted an old family photo to black & white… who said that family photos must always be formal and serious?  A moment between my kids on the bench in my study…
