Abstracts: Coconut palm

I suppose this should really be titled ‘Never, ever do this.’ It’s the kind of view that can get you into trouble, but I like the patterns. I just have to remember to stay alert.

Abstracts: Water painting

Recently, I’ve been taking photos of shoals of little fish I see when I get in the water. I thought I’d try shooting them from underneath and, while this hasn’t resulted in decent fish photos, I rather like the look of the water that’s shown up in some of the photos. This one has the added bonus that even the fish can be seen, too.

Abstracts: Blur

I had a relapse a few days ago, lured into shooting photos of butterflies on the wing, or should I say, trying to shoot. As the butterflies jitterbugged around, I followed them with my camera, even though I know how futile that can be. The result, predictably, was zero photos of butterflies in flight but, by way of compensation, a few curious blurs – of leaves in motion, wood in motion, light in motion.

This is one of those photos. And what is it? Well, that’s up to you. It’s whatever you see there.
