Though I'd start another photo thread...this time for abstract photographs. Photos where the actual object in front of the lens is obscured by the lighting, patterns, colors, motion blur or other techniques which become the real subject of the photo...I'll start with a few I have at work...more later

Thanks, Mtnmun. . . that's right off the camera. . . no special effects in the camera or afterwards. . . it was just one of those trippy water days at Gumboot Lake, way up in the Eddys across the valley from TheMountainShasta.

Some very cool shots by all. There was a technique posted in the photographers of supertopo that was interesting. It involved layering shots taken at different apatures and focal points. Perhaps I'll play with it sometime. Anyone try before?

Thanks everyone, some really neat stuff here.

Cosmic - I don't believe BASE posted his photos before my comment about sandwiching because my comment was referring to his shot on the other thread. I wouldn't have mentioned it if the same photo was here already.

I took off for several years and just took pictures. After a while you see things around you in an utterly different way. There is amazing form and beauty all around you if you start noticing.

The art of noticing.

Ahhh. Photoshop killed photography. Sad to say, but it is true. Sure there is still craft, but you won't see a single photograph published without going through software first. Not one.

Dick caught a beautiful pattern. What he did with it could not be replicated by any artist, and if he could have a printer spray it onto canvas with paint, he would get very wealthy from that.

20 years ago, that would be amazing. It is getting too easy, though. Not ragging on you, Dick, but photography has hit a wall that needs to be broken down to begin a new art.

I love your photographs because you see form that people walk right past.

The two shots above are El Cap from a bus and the ageless Merced River. These shots show a bubble blown from a bubble machine and a smash-up at a bike race.

Strange that today's sunsight, not half an hour ago, utilized it's red clouds to take my blues away over having screwed up on my camera settings the day before yesterday, which I still have to understand and put to rights. I'm new, the camera's the pro.

The colors only lasted until I'd shot these few scenes, out of focus, a scant three or four minutes after I'd noticed the colors out my window & had raced up to the fifth floor, barely getting there before everything started to fade to pastels.

I believe I need a new SD card. The old one is headed for the scrap heap, unless there's a way to save the shots that were on it before I "formatted." Any one know anything?--Artless Codger
