photographic abstraction #10

Welcome to the latest instalment in my abstract photography series, which has been delayed by a week following the disturbing news that was carried on this blog a week ago. It may or may not be obvious what the real subjects of these photos are, and you may want to try to work these out for yourself, but you should bear in mind that the original images have been cropped, and contrast, tonal balance and colour saturation have been altered, in some cases quite severely, to obtain the effect I wanted.

You may also want to suggest alternative titles, because my titles are merely a personal response to what I see, and I would expect most viewers to see something different. If you don’t want to see my titles before suggesting your own, then you can click on the first photo to start a slideshow.

  1. The first photo looks like men in black sitting on dark horses rushing towards a fiery inferno. Most probably a war.
    The third looks like tarmac on the British roads but coloured over with a streak of oil (white line).
    The forth photo looks like cabbages or leaves in blue.

    Now diagnose how mad I am.

    1. Not mad at all Rum. Your assessment of the first photo is similar to mine (I saw the horsemen), while you were spot on with the third (except that the white lines are slime trails left by slugs). Nuclear Winter may look like cabbages, but that isn’t what this is a photo of.

    Winter in Narnia (Is that Susan and Edmund standing together in the distance?)

  3. "The View From Fanling" has been included in Tuesday's Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.
