    Happy New Year!

    The theme for December – “Dark And Light” – is now closed.

    Please chose one of your December images as a final entry – the one you think is your best image from the month. Edit the title of your chosen image by inserting “December Entry – ” in front of its title (e.g. December Entry – “A Darker Shade Of Pale”).

     

    The theme for January 2013 is

    Abstract

    Post your images as replies to this post. (Make sure you’ve read the Guidelines first.)

    Have fun – abstractly, of course!

    This month’s theme is ‘Abstract’. Now, you may have notice that I did a few abstract shots towards the end of last month’s theme, so you might be suspecting that I’ve ‘fixed’ the topic for this month to suit a developing interest of my own.  I therefore wish to reassure you that the January topic came up entirely at random.

    To select a topic, I number the items on the list (having deleted ones we’ve used); I then use a random number generator (there are several good ones on the internet), by asking it to give my a number between 1 and the total number on our list. I look up which topic corresponds with the random number – and that’s the one we get!

    So, this month we got number 5 = Abstract.

    (But I can’t say I wasn’t pleased!) 🙂

    Aaah … thanks Ian.  I hadn’t a clue where to start.  Just don’t want to take pictures of other peoples abstract art and statues which would be cheating.  I like the 1st and last ones.

    No.1 for me. Notice the square format and central placement – works doesn’t it!

    Love the first one Meg.  I can see your Art training coming out.  I must try some still life compositional stuff at home.  There is a first time for everything 😉

    Must admit black always seems better for a background than white. Though both are a bit weak, but I know I can and will post better things.

    I like the first one a lot. Lovely interplay of the colours, forms and patterns. They create a very pleasing – and peaceful – composition.
