One Four Challenge September Week 1: Cloud Abstract

The Reina Sofia Modern Art Museum in Madrid had some amazing architecture, but the images that caught my eye were these very simple photos showing the glassy surface of the museum ceiling opening out onto puffy white clouds in a blue sky.

  1. Interesting captures, sometimes it is what you don’t see immediately that is the most rewarding. I’m looking forward to seeing where you take this next.

    • I think what’s amazing about this challenge is the range of work from the people participating. I know I am slowly learning to appreciate black and white images which I had no time for before, which only enriches the experience of looking at photos. Hopefully there will something about these abstracts (or someone else’s) that eventually tweak your interest….
