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.

So much sun, so many shadows – for Paula’s Thursday Special. I did not really know which one to pick. The second picture is entitled Measure for Measure, and the third one seems to answer to Paula’s question: “Are you ready to face your own shadow?” Or will it make you trip over your own legs?

Here’s a contribution for Paleica’s Magic Mottos. This month, it is Blüten und Blätter (blossoms and leaves), and I felt like trying to come up with as many interpretations as I could. I began with focusing on nature’s abundance. Then I realized that many of the resulting pictures resembled patterns … or floral decorations that seem to be ubiquitous.

Ein Beitrag für Paleicas Magische Mottos. Dieses Mal waren es Blüten und Blätter, und ich habe versucht, so viele Interpretationen wie möglich zu finden. Es begann mit einem Blick auf Überfluss und Fülle der Natur. Dann fiel mir auf, dass die Bilder an Muster erinnern … an florale Dekorationen, wie man sie überall findet.

Vivid | Introducing “The Froggery”

– Wolves run in a pack. Fish swim in a school. Now what would you call a ‘school’ of crows?
– A rookery.
– Meaning, a rook is a crow.
– That’s right.
– A rookery then. And a school of frogs would be a froggery?
– In your world, yes.
