On the heels of June

… comes an abstract, of course.

June was a pretty lean month for me, photo-wise, and my choice for abstracts was minimal. What we’re seeing here is the first flower blossoms from one of my pond plants, known as a lizard’s tail (Saururus cernuus.) The plants had gone in a couple of years ago […]

End of Sunday slide month… something

And so we come to Sunday slide 53, which we could only accomplish because Sunday was the first day of the year and, accordingly, the last too. But that meant we’d also have to do an end-of-the-month abstract, and I thought about this as I scanned this slide a few months back. Was there […]

Spot the six differences

The image on the right, at least, you may have seen before – I believe I’ve used it twice on the blog. I stumbled across the version on the left while searching for some images for a present project, and it’s only two frames previous to the right one. Both of these are not […]

Monthly Al pic something-or-other

It is the last day of the month, and in the time-honored traditions of my culture (what an absolutely nonsensical phrase,) that means we need an abstract image. I am woefully unprepared, thinking a couple of days ago that I had plenty of time to work on blog stuff and somehow working on far […]

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 […]
