Phoneography Challenge ~ Trompe-l’oeil California Style

swimmingpoolreflectionsfinal An upside down world in reflection. The water’s great, come on in.

Today is Challenger’s Choice at Lens and Pens by Sally’s blog for Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices. Sally photographs in the abstract today, and says in part “So why create an image that is unrecognizable? Out of context? Maybe it’s to seize intrigue and mystery that shows a new way of seeing the old. Maybe it shows a more interesting portion. Maybe it says so much more than the intact object. Maybe it’s a challenge to view a human innovation with fresh perspective. Just maybe the new visual language is more enticing, more complex or more simple than the original. Or it does not have to be. It just may be a fleeting scenario that pleases the eye as a frozen moment of insight. Maybe the reason is irrelevant. Maybe the final image is all that matters. Maybe it does matter. Maybe the impetus counts. In truth it’s all in the eye of the beholders.”

  5. Oooooo Angeline, You’ve done it again! Don’t care what it is, as an abstract piece the design and colour is beautiful. It doesn’t have to be something. Beauty is everything.

  9. Very, very nice–the composition makes for a mysterious image that, even in its simplistic design, keeps me returning to see more. Happy Photo Challenge.
