Theme is Abstract
'Water' by Tony Pelham of Warrington U3A
Strolling along the docks in Liverpool, I noticed the swirly shapes in the muddy water by the lock. The reflected colours from the blue sky added to the texture.
'Rain On Table' by Sheila Simon of Spelthorne U3A
This was taking after some rain on the outside metal table. I liked the pattern it made and thought it would make an interesting shot.
'Shadows' by Cynthia Morton of Sidcup U3A
Walking past the open doorway of the Orangery at Wrest Park the shadows caught my eye for the abstract designs created onto the wall with the sun shining through the glass roof.
'Spaghetti' by Jonathan Ruddle of Hartley Wintney& District U3A
The photo may look like red pipe cleaners but it is actually six pieces of normal spaghetti propped up in the sunlight against two pieces of white paper. A bit of a colour change was then required.
'Deserted Tennis Court' by Christine Barrett of Christchurch U3A
'French Beans' by Debbie Edwards of Chorleywood U3A
Commemorating my first ever crop of French beans, just enough for one!
'Campus' by Brian Snelsdon of Hockley & Hawkwell U3A
Southend Campus, Essex University taken on a shopping trip to Southend.
'Bending Light' by Chris Winner of Flintshire U3A
Light painting: a 3 second exposure of a moving, flashing LED light strip, 'bent' through a glass sphere. The glass sphere was on a black reflective surface.
'Metal Dish' by Mike Sharp of Melbourne & District U3A
I am still self-isolating, which gave me the opprtunity to wander through the house in search of a suitable 'Abstract' subject. The photograph is a close up shot of a shallow metal ornamental dish reflecting natural daylight from a nearby window.
'Car' by Janet Rutter of Devizes & District U3A
Our car having been sat on the drive all this time, offers an additional photographic opportunity!
'Kitchen Mayhem' by Jill Cornwell of Hartley Wintney & District U3A
KItchen Mayhem! Playing around with a set of kitchen containers and a little editing in Photoshop!
'Mirror Abstract' by Elizabeth McIndoe of Worcester U3A
'Mirror Abstract' - Earlier on during lockdown, I experimented with photographing mirrors, which can be tricky. This image uses a long vintage mirror, some dried leaves and berries and a touch of computer magic!
'Soil Colours' by Mike Watson of Stubbington U3A
'Mask Mosaic' by Annette Vowden of Devizes & District U3A
A pile of fabric offcuts ready to make into masks. I experimented with different camera settings and found 'fragmented'. They turned into a colourful mosaic.
'Acrylic Paints' by Susan Bodsworth of Porthcawl U3A
This is one of my own abstract works of art. It's acrylic flow paints, you never know quite what the results will be, but its quite exciting when you have finished to see how it's turned out.
