December 5 - Abstract Photos (Part 2)

Another genre of abstract photography centres on man-made objects. I will sometimes focus in on everyday things, often the familiar.

At other times I may isolate the subject and not show anything around it. The frame of the photo then contains only a segment of the subject, thus leaving the rest to the viewer's imagination.

I'll conclude by showing four other examples of abstract photos of found objects.

As you can see from this, many of the techniques are not exclusive. The methodology does overlap.
