One of my favorite pasttimes of late has been wandering around the town where I live (Greenbelt, MD) with my dog, taking pictures of whatever catches my eye. This has resulted in a large number of pseudo-macro photos of flowers and a large number of pretty abstract pictures of the local architecture, such as these. The reactions of my wife and friends (and my Flickr stats) seem to indicate that I should take more photos of my pets instead. Nonetheless, I really enjoy taking them, so I thought I'd share a few of them here.

Any comments or suggestions for improvement are more than welcome, and I'd love to see photos other people have taken in the same vein.

Laserguy, I also enjoy "architectural abstracts" very much. I've never quite thought of calling them that, but that's a good description. Back in my film days this was mostly what I shot.

I particularly like the one with the sculpture and the last one, though they're all done very well.

Believe it or not, I've been kind of doing this sort of things with my dogs and cats - hard to believe but the abstract nature of light and shadow can even include animals.

Keep doing what you enjoy the most. Thanks so much for these!:thumbup: You might even consider posting larger sizes by embedding your photos from Flickr, which if you're unclear about the method is described in the Housekeeping forum right here: https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=316 I like to see photos in a larger size so I can appreciate them more completely.

Much better - now I can see the details! Your photos have super color and are really well exposed - white balance, details all great! Now I can easily say that I seriously think they're all great - gotta love that blue!:2thumbs: The details and color in the brick building's window and the step flashing is very cool, too.

Major improvement to see them this way, Laserguy.:biggrin:

I like those.
"Architectural Abstracts" I'll have to remember that.
I'll be doing some of that.
Thanks for the inspiration
