Abstract 158 was taken from a group of still life photos using garlic cloves as the subject. The pictures below are from the same session.

Yesterday was a day of heavy showers, punctuated by occasional brief spells of sunshine. It was mischievous weather – the sort that lulled you into a false sense of security and then soaked you to the skin!
But by early evening the showers had ceased and the rays of the sinking sun produced a range of soft pinks and blues in the passing clouds. The only sounds were bird songs, the occasional bleating of lambs in the sheep field and the apologetic hourly chime from the clock in the church tower. It was a magical time.
Down at the reservoir, while the coots were cooting and the swans were swanning, across the causeway four anglers were ….. well, what were they doing? Two boats, each with two anglers, were nestled together, but only one angler had a fishing rod and, even more strangely, he had two rods in one hand!! It was all very odd and I’ve no idea what was going on!
It is interesting to compare the black and white images below with the colour image, Pond Abstract, posted recently. All of the shots were taken within seconds of each other. It seems to me that the monochrome pictures convey a sense of energy and movement, which is the essence of these photos. The colour image, I find more static but with a strong ‘pattern’ interrelationship between shapes and colours.
