Day 13: Gas Patch


Day 13: Gas Patch, originally uploaded by susanvg.

I was walking in a parking garage and saw this rainbow effect from a patch of gas on the pavement - just an abstract effect. I'm not pleased about the whole composition in terms of the patch of light. But I also like the texture.

The photograph as abstract art. I explored a bit on the internet and found some interesting examples. We usually think of the photograph as a representation. In fact, once photographs were possible, many painters lost their livelihood - painting portraits. But photography is just another medium through which we can express ourselves and exploring colour and texture is one way to do that.
