The statistics tell me this is post No. 600! Doesn’t time fly when you’re enjoying yourself?!
Perhaps it was a combination of the odd glass of wine and the onset of the pantomime season that encouraged me to see an Aladdin-like character in this seaweed ‘abstract’!

This is the second of a series of abstract images derived from photographs of dune grasses’ See also Dune Grasses ‘Close Encounter’

I often feel that black and white offers the best way for me to express what I feel about reeds and grasses. It is a medium that conveys a crispness of shape, a hint of rhythmic movement and, through the careful use of tones, the opportunity to highlight or subdue elements within the composition. Often, as in this picture, there seems to be an overlap between photography, etching and wood engraving.
