The Eye of Abstraction

The B&W Project
Week 5/26: Abstract
#BWProject26 | +Tisha Montgomery +Brandon Luk +Alison Christensen & +Lauri Novak 

I struggled with this week's photo theme, because I couldn't quite grasp what abstract was, in photographic terms. I was overthinking it, per usual.  Finally I decided that abstract is a way of seeing a subject without seeing it in its entirety. To focus on one element, that still conveys to the viewer's imagination the subject, rather than reveal the whole picture. Representing the subject's glorious lines, curves, and textures, without all the clutter. Yes, that is how I do abstract.
