Thankfully Sally's explanation did the trick - once again!
Apparently, it's all about:
The use of a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.
My first thought was to just have fun with the various Picasa tools and manipulate an image, but then I was given these for my birthday on Sunday
And I quickly realized, all I needed to do was open my eyes, and get r-e-a-l-l-y close...
I have not done anything at all with these shots beside point 'n' shoot :)
Now I'm whizzing over to Sally's Studio Sublime to see all the other wacky, abstract photos - can't wait :)
Till next week xxx
