I’m increasingly drawn to creating abstract images. Not only are they interesting in their own right, but moving away from representational work allows me to be a little freer with artistic interpretation as well.
The image below is a reflection of a retaining wall on the surface of Lake Washington. That particular morning was quite still and the lake was almost glassy, with only a few gentle ripples to provide visual interest.
The photo as it came out of the camera was on the cool side, and the blue tones reinforce the idea of water. Warming up the white balance as in the second image takes it further into abstraction.
