Early of Spring time this year I and a friend of mine went for a walk down to a canal that connects Leeds and Liverpool.
When we got there I saw that some parts along the canal was covered by some oil. I guessed it was the oil that been used to run the canal boats around there. Obviously it’s not good for the surroundings but what can I do? *shrug*
Apart from that unpleasant thing the weather was very good, sunny bright. The shadows of the trees and other surroundings reflected to the water and the sunlight emphasized so it created abstract patterns.
Here they are…
Is this called a blessing in disguise? Hope you enjoyed them.
I have my own habit which I like to watch the sky. I’ve always fascinated by especially if there were some clouds. The clouds sometimes create an abstract formation and I am quite astonished by most of the times. I’ve taken lots of photos of the clouds like this one here, the clouds that look like have two eyes.
Yesterday the weather here in UK were so unpredictable. Heavy rain and sunny spells. Even there was a time when the heavy rain was pouring down in the sunny bright.
I went out in the afternoon after the rain stopped and as soon as I came out from the house, I saw these ones:
I continued my walk and I saw this unfathomable cloud:
To me it looks like a small dog walking on the roof and following a little angel.
By using Picassa I increased the shadow of ‘the dog’ to the maximum and here the result:
Do you like my editing? Hope you’ll leave me a comment. Thank you in advance.
I found some trees have an interesting pattern on their bark and I am quite fascinated by. That’s why I like to their picture sometimes.
To continuing my post of abstract photograph then here another experiment that I’ve made to create another abstract. I used my Kodak Easy Share C713.
The object is a LED display of the clock/timer of my cooker. I moved my camera diagonally and turned the light off in my kitchen.
Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). What is that? I had no idea when my friends at Kampret Klik played a game with ICM in theme. One of them, Misscurious83, explained me that ICM is about to move your camera while taking a picture. Oh well! That means I don’t have to panicking since I got some pictures of it, I said to myself. I didn’t know it before if it is called Intentional Camera Movement, LOL.
I am very thankful to Katie because she was the one who gave me an inspiration about the ICM as I’ve posted here: Indefinite Image: The Bright Against The Dark. Since then I’ve been learning how to do and produce a good image.
Yesterday I went to a country park for ‘chasing’ the sunset. Unfortunately it was cloudy when the sun was going down whilst it was sunshine beforehand during the daytime. When I was taking lots of pictures in the park, a voice came across to my head telling me to practice the ICM photographs. So I started playing with my Kodak Easy Share C713 by moving it around such as diagonally, horizontally, and vertically.
And here my some pictures of the ICM that I just took it yesterday.
My first trial of ICM photograph
My second trial of ICM photograph
Another trial of ICM photograph
My final trial of ICM photograph
The blue sunset at the horizon as my object of ICM photograph
Here another article by Juergen Roth, Mastering the Art of Intentional Camera Movement. It is very useful for learning ICM photograph.
These pictures of my fireplace have just been taken by now! I’ve been inspired by katie’s camera blog with her ideas of Photography as Abstract.
I took these pictures using Kodak EasyShare C713 and set it for night portrait. I moved my camera diagonally after released the shutter. So tonight was my first experiment and hope I could practice more to get better and better.
Thanks for the inspiration, Katie!

I always like to observe the cloud because it always shows me unfathomable painting of the universe.
If you look at the pictures in detail then you might able to find ‘two eyes’ in the cloud.
