A photograph of baking food ‘hundreds and thousands’.
Up until now I’ve always said that I don’t have a favourite style of photogrpahy. But more and more recently I’ve noticed that my favourite photographs seem to be abstract photographys. Which to me is beginning to make sense. I’ve also mentioned that I often try to take a photograph from a different perspective. Why? Most ‘common’ photographed items (landmarks etc.) are shot from the same spot and look very similar so none of them really stand out from the crowd. So, by photographing from a different perspective makes it more memorable and unique I think.
Or maybe it’s just that I don’t get out to photograph as often as I’d like to so I sometimes end up around my house with my camera looking for things to photograph and think what could make a good photo. Like this container of hundreds and thousands; I lay them out on a flat baking tray and like the result. I think it’d look even more impressive on a large acrylic print on my wall.
Colors and colors are lyrics from the catchy song ‘Colors’ by Hot Chip
A bunch of straws turned into an abstract photograph by inverting the colours of the photograph.
Cherry Coloured Funk is a song from the album Heaven Or Las Vegas by the magnificent Cocteau Twins. I think the colours in this photography vaguely match the abstrct colours on the album cover Heaven Or Las Vegas.
I’m always drawn to the Galway Hooker sculpture in Eyre Square, Galway. I like the rustic look of it and the straight lines and very sharp angles. These are two abstract photographs of the Eyre Square sculpture with a crow resting on it.
Blackbird Fly is a song by The Beatles, taken from the album The Beatles, a.k.a. The White Album
Playing with my macro lens,water, a few drops of olive oil and washing up liquid. Afterwards I added a filter.
This is an old photo (2010) but it’s nice for a Christmas posting so I’m re-posting it.
It’s a very simple photo but shows how you can achieve something different by just playing around with your camera.
Oh Christmas lights
Light up the street
Light up the fireworks in me
May all your troubles soon be gone
Those Christmas lights, keep shining on
Christmas lights is a song by Coldplay.
