You knew this was coming

… because it’s the month’s end, of course.

And naturally I had to use another shot from the trip – I’ll probably be finding excuses for that for a while yet.

It’s easy to believe this one has been altered, but not really – this is how it came from the camera. Like I […]

March abstract is here, and it brought a friend

I pretty much knew this was going to be the month-end abstract as soon as I took it – with the caveat, of course, that I might find something better afterward, but here it is, so you have a tiny insight into my photography outings. I don’t suppose this is too hard to figure […]

Been saving this abstract

And again, I’m not sure how well it fits into the specific definition of ‘abstract,’ and I don’t care either.

This came from the same outing mentioned here, and is a vertical crop from a slightly larger horizontal frame – I was very pleased with the detail from both the hoverfly and the petals […]

Beware the Abstracts of March

Okay, okay, I’m finally starting to get something interesting to post, so more content will be along shortly. For now, we do our month end abstract, a quick exploitation of the sunset colors a couple of weeks ago. They were on their way out here, vanishing completely within minutes, so I was lucky to […]

January’s abstract

If you’re seeing this, it means I’ve failed.

I am committed to continuing the month-end abstract images that I kinda sorta started doing last year, but I really haven’t shot much this month. I did not neglect the winter storm that hit the east coast of the US, but also didn’t shoot a lot […]

December’s abstract

I got this one during the same outing as the previous post, but I needed to close the year with another abstract, so here it is. It’s a tight crop from the original, a down feather floating on the pond and sporting some raindrops, taken while perched precariously on the shore. I suspect it […]

November’s abstract (a day late)

Dammit, I meant to post this yesterday, and forgot all about it. I’m disappointing my legions of readers…

While I’ve had it in the back of my mind to maintain this new ‘tradition’ of posting an abstract at month’s end, it hasn’t worked out for every month. But I knew this one was in […]

I’ll have to do this in the front yard someday

Wouldn’t it be a great diorama, about a thousand times life size?

For Halloween this year, I feature a jumping spider, most likely an Habronattus pyrrithrix (what a great name,) peering out from around the edge of a dog fennel stalk. I captured this while in pursuit of another subject one evening a few […]

July’s abstract

Yeah, now I’m feeling obligated…

This one’s from not quite a week ago, an earlier morning outing. The sun had finally broken through the foliage and was attempting to burn off the overnight dew that had been surviving in the shade. In the brief time slot where the light was hitting it, before it […]

Abstract twofer

I realize I started a pattern with posting abstract images on the last day of March and April, then pathetically let this lapse for May. So, for June we will have two.

Neither of these need explaining, of course, so I will end the text here, and simply let the images speak for themselves. […]
