ABSTRACT FRIDAYS

In answer to yesterday’s comments about chilling the bee, I read it in a 10 year old issue of Popular Photography a little while ago. Someone donated a few to the library as a give-away to whoever wanted them; and my daughter, who volunteers there, grabbed them for me. They’re very entertaining to read. Some timeless info in there, and some amusing missed predictions regarding photography and the 21st century. So far, I’ve chilled a bee, a moth (he warmed up before I could take one photo) and a wasp. I lost the wasp in the fridge somewhere, though. Apparently they are able squeeze really skinny to make their escape.

This is Abstract Friday. This is part of the fitness center where hubby works out every morning and the girls take swim lessons. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the shapes of the arches going into the building caught my eye.

Took me a minute! after reading your Info I went back and saw what it was LOL Well done!


My son loves to chill bugs. He does it for me once in a while to shoot.

He read a story about a fly on a string LOL and the how to do it. So he likes to put flys,moths or what ever on a string LOL

i have no idea. i'm guessing, without looking at the other posts, that it's some kind of office folders or something? looks papery, officey.

Interesting shot. Love how shifting one's focus when looking at the picture can render all sorts of different 3D illusions... nice work.

The blue and brown go together so well. The shapes and shadow are strong and in particular i like the little window(?) in the white bit that adds even more interest and shape to the otherwise featureless white structure. Very good observation and execution.

A lovely skew here - architecture can yield some tasty abstracts if we're willing to look for them.
