Continuing the thought of people liking or disliking photos: I have to confess that I don’t really like abstracts. It’s kinda strange – I don’t see much in them when I look at them, but I do seem to take a few that are moderately successful. Yesterday’s image, for example, was (in my mind) an abstract that few people like. To the right is another.
This also came from the NAPP conference – in fact, the day before I had watched Jay Maisel’s presentation, where he mentioned that he always takes pictures out of the windows of each hotel that he stays at.
I was inspired, so I did the same.
Again, one of my favorite photos. There’s structure, blended colors, and yet a waviness, irregularity to it. You can somewhat see what’s there, but it’s distorted.
So I showed it to friends and family. For this one, maybe three people liked it? Better than the last photo, and interestingly: the person who liked the previous, didn’t really like this. I don’t think it fit his orderly frame of mind.
