Abstracts – water and things

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #74: Abstract
Bren’s Photo for the Week #48: Water
Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Ponder

I did ponder what I could post for abstract. I often take a photo and it isn’t quite right for the original subject but gets kept as it has a certain “quality” that I like. Some are deliberate like the water shots in this gallery others are well, I’ll let you be the judge.

These couple of water photos are just as I took them. No editing or enhancements at all. Just the reflection of the boat or wharf or whatever was beside me when I took the images.

The calendar

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Calendar

Every year I try to get a calendar that will bring me joy when I turn over the months. My 2019 calendar had Salvador Dali prints, an artist whose works I have loved ever since seeing the print for December 2019, Soft Construction With Baked Beans (Premonition of Civil War) 1936.

Surrealism isn’t for everyone. A style of art I really like. My first time in Europe I managed to get to two Dali Galleries in Spain.
