The Art of Nature

While visiting the Towery’s to shoot the EMP building, we took a bit of time to shoot the shipyard in Seattle where I stumbled upon this scene.  Isn’t nature amazing?  What was once a pristine newly painted boat has now been turned into a work of art, primarily due to nature doing her work over time.  I’ve always been a fan of abstract photography and feel this is a worthy addition to my portfolio.

    John, That one would be a worthy addition to anyone’s portfolio ! I’m finding it impossible to decide whether it’s the texture or the color that is so mesmerizing. I guess I’ll vote BOTH. Here’s an early morning thought evoked by your dynamite shot:

    “Time brings all things to pass.”

    John–That’s an absolutely beautiful abstract!!!! Studying it deeper, I think there are some Chinese characters, in this image, trying to tell you something. Really enjoy this piece.

        John, I have no idea–but I’m sure it would be all good.

    It says, “Print me on a large canvas and display me proudly!”

    Amazing Shipyard-Abstract-Art JB! Looks like a water reflection with white Aspens, leaves and the sky radiating upon the water ripples. You could not do better painting this! A visionary and captured masterpiece! Awesome and stunning!
