Looking for pictures from a different series, I happened upon these – and remembered the last Lens Artists’ Photo Challenge: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles … and the places they take us. (The sign in the bottom picture reads ‘keep clear’.)
Paleica continues her monthly photo challenge series 12 Magische Mottos. This month’s magic word is abstraction. Please check it out – there is some really great photography on display.
I’d had in mind to try my hand at abstract nature photos for a change. Last weekend’s snow invited an attempt to go abstract with ‘out of the camera’ pictures. I did not even do anything about the colours because I was fascinated by the fact that the ‘white’ snow never looked quite the same: That day, the sky shifted rapidly from cloudy to blindingly sunny.
Paula at Lost in Translation suggests we defocus – and I wanted to try some abstract nature pictures. Here’s a glimpse.

As the days get shorter and the weather generally takes a turn for the worse, it sems that the little souces of light – albeit reflected light – become more conspicuous. | A contribution for this week’s Photo Challenge.
This week’s Photo Challenge turns out to fascinate me, what with the days getting darker and leaving the photographer looking for lights… Here is another shot at the topic.

Following Paelica’s Magic Motto Formen & Figuren (shapes & figures), I decided to find as many dots and circles as I can. This is part four of the series.
The second of my entries for Paleica’s Magic Motto for the month of March: Formen & Figuren: It seems like I got stuck with dots and circles, although there must be other forms, even in geometry. Call it creative stubbornness (I read that term in a mystery novel, and liked it).
Paleica at episoden.film gives photographers a month to come up with responses to her challenges, which is nice to begin with. In January and February I used the time to photograph and select, and came up with a retrospective by the end of the month. Today I see it differently. I photographed Formen & Figuren (shapes and figures), trying things out. I intend to share them over the month so we can see what develops (if anything develops at all).
