My first thought when I saw the Lens-Artists latest photo challenge ‘Photographic Groove’ was MACRO. I immediately put together a batch of favourites from the last few months and then I discovered that my groove could be better described as ‘accidental art’.
On one of my earlier posts about it I wrote, ‘I can’t believe how many people leave art just lying around.’
Most of the images are macros.
But this one, a reflection of coloured kayaks in the water isn’t a macro. My photographic groove is more about abstract design and textures.
Torn posters together with a rusted panel bolted onto a telephone pole.
I am not entirely sure what this is an image of – the label says ‘abstract texture of a red fiberglass boat?’ I have several photos of it, and by checking the before and after photos it appears to be something related to one of the public docks, perhaps a semi-collapsed rubber dingy? At any rate, after this I decided to try and remember to take a long shot so I could at least figure out what it was that I was taking a picture of.
Here are two images where I actually took the longer shot, and show how something mundane can be transformed into art.
