Thursday’s Special: Abstract (Guest Challenge by Suzanne Miller)

This time on Thursday’s Special the guest challenger Suzanne Miller inspires us to experiment and have fun taking photographs: “The contemporary world is filled with visual stimulation that demands we pay attention and engage with it in some way. Sometimes it can be relief to take time out and let go of the urge to make sense of what is seen – to focus instead on the act of seeing rather than the intellectual processes of naming and analysing what is being seen.”
I decided to give it a try…

  2. You never disappoint Ese. Sorry for not seeing it before now. I am a bit distracted today. Of all the entries that came for this challenge yours is the only one that is true abstract 🙂 xx

    1. Thank you very much, Paula – it was my pleasure to come up with something. A bit difficult though – especially, seeing what Suzanne and you had found in your “secret files of photo treasures”. 🙂
      Don’t worry about not seeing it earlier – not a problem at all! I hope you have a bit more laid back weekend ahead to have some rest. Hugs

      1. 🙂 Thank you Ese. I look forward to this weekend. I hope you are fine. Have you thought about a theme for your challenge in Summer (not pushing) 😀 This sunday the theme is a bit tricky (but does not have to be if taken loosely). It is “tribe”

        1. I am ok, yes, just a bit under a pile of work that will keep increasing but otherwise kicking. 🙂 I was thinking about Scent but haven’t checked again if you already have covered that one before.
          Tribe…tsk, tsk…THAT is a challenge!

  5. I love your prompt for comments! How not to say something!
    I found you photo at Paula’s blog, btw.
    Besides liking your photos, I truly enjoyed your call to “to take time out and let go of the urge to make sense of what is seen – to focus instead on the act of seeing rather than the intellectual processes of naming and analysing what is being seen.”
    Thanks!
