WPC -Abstract


This week, turn the concrete and familiar into something new and mysterious.

“Humans who spend time in the wilderness, alone, without man-made mechanical noise around them, often discover that their brain begins to recover its ability to discern things.”                               ~ Robert Anderson ~

This week, find your own (proverbial?) chestnut tree. Point your camera at something familiar and turn it into something else. Whether it’s a wall in your house, a friend’s arm, or a billboard seen from afar, we may or may not recognize what it actually is. But we’ll certainly discover something else about it in the process.


Colorful reflections on a lake


After reviewing some of my photos I realized that I love abstract and finding mystery in nature. When I see ice I sit down near it with camera in hand taking photos from all angles, capturing the natural light and all the mysteries hidden within. Love looking at the lines of tree trunks and wondering what this tree has witnessed and why it was cut down. When I noticed the pine needles lying on the ground they reminded me of pixie sticks game that I played as a child. When we stop and take time to notice shadows on the wall or floor, water frozen in motion, reflections on water, pine needles and leaves we will see how remarkable this world is and how blessed we are to be a part of this mysterious adventure. I would love to hear about the mysteries and interesting thoughts you have when looking at the ordinary objects in our own life.
