Lightbulb Salon 263 - Abstract

This is the 263rd Digital Photography Now Salon and this time the theme is 'Abstract'.

Do ordinary everyday things suddenly appear to you as interesting patterns or even resemble other things in an unusual, dare I say it, even an 'artistic way'? That's one way to capturing a visual abstract. It can be great fun!

Here are a couple of examples, both resembling heads (in my mind at least!)

This a black and white conversion. It's a picture of my wardrobe with a shirt cuff caught sticking out, nose-like with the two doorknobs above looking like eyes.

This one is a kitchen cupboard handle. Lit by the kitchen window, Most days I see this side-profile of a figure with a big nose wearing a cap

I'm sure everyone thinks of abstracts from time to time, so why not photograph them and post them here?

Here's what you have to do.

1. Photographs must be displayed within a forum post and posted in this thread. Please keep images to no wider than 1600 pixels and no taller than 1200 pixels.

2. TWO entries maximum per user ID only, please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself. In fact, comments are to be encouraged!

4. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

5. The curatorís decision is final.

6. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

7. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that 'honour' to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

8. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

9. To clarify, the copyright of images posted to the forum or gallery become part of the site's copyright, but only for the protection of the owner of the image. The owner of this site will NEVER claim ownership or additional use of any image without the agreement of the owner of the image.

The deadline for entries this time is Midnight Wednesday, 22nd of May 2019, BST.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!
