This post has grown out of a series of posts on my Implied Spaces blog. One of things that intrigues me in photographing outdoor environments is naturally formed abstract patterns – found organic/natural abstracts. I explored the process of photographing and manipulating those images in three posts ( click links below to visit ).

      Many thanks . These are all close-up shots of the melting ice on our driveway. The last one is the remains of a frozen boot print on the walkway. I have been recording short video close-ups of the run off and plan on creating a ice melt video – abstract in motion.

      Many thanks Meredith. My old teacher reflex-habits can not resist informing & sharing. 😀

        i love it. i had studio classes… and loved them… and didn’t get it, at the same time. Reading your blog and studying your ideas is like the ‘i really love studio!’ experience of creation and comparison with others that was too new to me to understand, previously.

        I think your gift as a teacher generously makes new universes for creative artists who would not otherwise have access to exploring and developing concepts through experimentation and discussion.

        For an old retired teacher that is wonderful to hear. Teaching is a kind of an addiction. It is one of those jobs that you breath, drink and eat. I have known teachers who kept teaching until the dropped and others who have to find a new outlet when they retire.
