Color Fields

A bit of texture, some color and practically nothing recognizable:

Completely Non-objective

Dare I say “completely”, “non-objective”? Non-representational? The images in this post did after all derive from photgraphs of real objects. Nonetheless, what is left are images, interesting just for their form and colorĀ  – their source is even a mystery to me now.

Nature Softened

Here are some recent abstract photos of natural subjects. The edges have been softened and blurred by varying amounts of camera movement during an extended exposure (a couple of seconds).

Urban Dreammares

Even when out walking about taking photos I like to mix things up. I might shoot images that I think have the form to work well as black and white and then I will shift gears, drop my shutter speed way down and generate some camera motion abstracts.

Here are a selection of photos from my recent photoshoot in Calgary, where I abstracted images in the downtown area. There is a suggestion of the hard lines of urban forms but they are softened and there is a sense of familiarity but you can’t quite focus and identify the forms.

YYC – A Morning in Black and White

I was in Calgary (Alberta, Canada) on 2015 September 12 for a meeting of the Provincial Council of the Alberta Society of Artists. I had an opportunity to spend some time walking and photographing in the downtown core that morning. This group of photos I present in black and white which suits their emphasis on form.
