(5/366/2020) My hunt for abstracts continues. I generally need better light. My iPhone 8+ has a pretty good camera but it does get a bit grainy when light is low. I’ve noticed this with earlier images in this project: it’s especially obvious when I use macro mode in Camera+ I spotted this while getting my…… Continue reading Drawer


(4/366/2020) Found some wooden stick things in a craft shop. I liked the pattern they made in their storage cup. The lady in the shop looked at me as if I was a bit daft. She’s not far wrong https://flic.kr/p/2i9Za9A Sticks

White Lines

(2/366/2020)  Day 2 and I’m already finding abstracts hard to come by! I do need more practice.  This sink presented itself later in the day and I loved the way the shadows worked with the bright white porcelain. https://flic.kr/p/2i982sZ White Lines

2020 already?


Back at the beginning of last year I said something or other about writing more in 2019. I was just chock-full of enthusiasm about it too. Maybe. I wrote four posts, including that one. It’s difficult to argue that this was anywhere near the definition of ‘write more’, however I find myself starting another year…… Continue reading 2020 already?

The weather isn’t especially conducive to getting out and about, so I have been hunting around the house for subjects. I need to…… Continue reading 5/1/2018 Shade

323/365 Disks

“199/365 Tracks” by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA My favourite photos are generally the more abstract ones. Lines and shapes are my thing, and I found this set of lines while waiting for a delayed tram at Gregory Street Tram stop. I had plenty of time to ponder the nature of this scene.

137/365 Lights out

“137/365 Lights out” by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA I’m a fan of abstract photography, so here’s an attempt by me. I like the fact that it’s very black. I like black.

8/365 Lamp

Whenever I start a photography project I always like to do a few abstract photos. I love these, and am always looking for ways at looking at everyday objects and making them look different. This is one of those – one of the lights above our dining table. Also, they are a good option when…… Continue reading 8/365 Lamp
