Feelin' Abstract

It's a rare day out that I don't spend at least part of my time focusing on abstract details.. sometimes just to kill time while waiting on the light, or sometimes because I find some genuinely interesting subjects. Much of it turns out to be junk of course, but every once in a while I snag one that looks just right somehow, at least to my eye. Very much a matter of personal taste; some people find the "picture" in this pure shape/color/texture and others don't react to it at all, but Mother Nature is an abstract expressionist, for sure.

This is a wonderful collection of colours, buttressed by the excellent 'flow' of the geometry within the photo itself. It reminds me that I need to remember to get closer to more of my subjects. This scene might also welcome some macro photography. I especially appreciate the hues of your brown/oranges and the wide variety of intensities of your blues.
