Blurry abstract

Blurry abstract

I thought I’d try a bit of paint throwing after I’d finished photographing Reconstructed Nature III – I thought it looked like it needed a bit of colour added to it. Let’s just say that wasn’t completely successful but once dried there were a few abstract macro shots to be had. This one was with my iPhone and a close-up lens attachment that I was playing with before I got started. The lens attachment blurs the image quite dramatically once away from the centre but there’s something about the angle and the colours in this shot, along with that small crater towards that middle that somehow makes it all work.
