Abstract Photography, Close-Up, Cropped, Patterns, Photography, Photos, Pictures, Textures, Zoomed In
I take a lot of pictures, not because I’m particularly good with a camera, but because I feel fortunate to see some of the things I have these last few years. Mostly, when I take a picture, it’s the sort of naive realist in me wanting to show others this really neat thing I saw just over there. Afterwards I may crop and I might bring out the colors a bit here and there, but there really isn’t much art to what I do with a picture box. Every now and then, though, what catches my eye is a pattern or a texture. The results might be more fartsy than artsy, but I still think these pics are kind of amusing.

Very cool pictures. I think you are drawn to lines.
That’s the best approach to take, Shoot what you like and what interests you – The more you take the better you are! 🙂
Very cool shots! My eye tends to be drawn to rusty things, some of which you can see on my flickr page scattered amongst the other things I photograph such as people: https://www.flickr.com/photos/meabbott/
Great collection. 🙂

I’ve never been a huge fan of photography but I do like abstract photography, so you certainly hit the spot with me on the vast majority of these. My favorites are termites, ice, neon, perpendicular and blueberry swirl (shame about the plane wing…..)

I really like what you’ve captured. I can see you noticing patterns, how light plays, texture, and movement. They’re things I’m also drawn to!

Thanks for sharing. I enjoy abstract nature art and street art more than going to a museum.
Those are all SO cool!
Great pictures of texture, very interesting. The icy one at the beginning my favorite, just beautiful!
You have an artistic eye for pattern and composition….
No! your wrong about your pictures, that pictures and the thousand word saying is true your picture tell a story, change the lighting or the angle and you’ve change the story.
Take the picture the first snow the one with the many tire treads, what I see in that picture the intersecting lifes of stranges born in places far and wide. Each one on their own jouney of live unknown to each other, but in that place of tire tracks they came together in one place in their own moment in time.
Wow. These photos are amazing. Stunning new way of looking at everyday sights.
I like the picture with the grass growing through the floor. Reminds how ephemeral human existence is.

I like the pictures, but is “embiggen” really a word? If so, congratulations!

Dan, this a great post. Thanks for following Art and Tulips…sounds as if we’re about equally irreverent and having fun with it. Cheers from sunny San Diego!
I like it when irregular things are perfectly captured in a sweet regular pattern.
In MHO, these are definitely NOT bad photos. I like them and often find myself attracted to the same kinds of subjects in my photography.

I admire your courage and fortitude, for me standing in front or behind a camera is a challenge that I know I will not pass. I think Gandalf was aiming his famous line at me.
I think cameras hate me on principal.
I will give you an example, my wife is more beautiful than most movie stars, yet this is never the case if I was the one taking the picture, she would be squat , grinning and generally look like she escaped the mental facility around the corner (whatever country we happen to be, I also for some cosmic joke, take at least one picture of my wife around the corner of a mental health facility .. never intentionally.)
And if I try to give my most charming smile for the cam, I end up looking like a Bonobo working his way to a banana.
Lovely photos, seriously.
