"blurred bamboo"

A highly inventive title again? But why give it some pretencious title anyway? This is blurred bamboo using the same technique.

"Abstracted Landscape"

Only now have I been able to get outside and do some photography, because finally its a little warmer! Went to Cornwall and boy was the weather great, really absolutely stupendous old chap......... So only now can the abstract project link to my original landscape project I wanted to do. I can't link bog standard landscapes to abstract photography, because I’m obviously avoiding representation. But I can deliberately blur the landscapes I capture by physically moving the camera. I’ve got my own method of doing this by balancing the camera (praying I don’t drop it!!) on my knee and moving the camera as much as I can as I take it. I can’t physically lift the camera off of my lap so the way I do it is the only way I can. I thank my lucky stars I can still manage with my condition. Oh yeah almost forgott, I took this at trelissick gardens.

Everythings So Blurry.......

Sparks flying

Captured at "5 Degrees West" in Falmouth, Cornwall, great place it is too, run by my Cousin. I took it looking through the back door into the patio area with white lights in the Trellis. I've deliberately moved the camera to capture the light trails. Its Non-representational of what I was seeing, so its arguably abstract.

A comparision

I've found these landscape paintings by Jonathen Shaw. I think it's interesting to see the visual similarity to my glass photos with the flowing lines and colours.
