Abstract

VertGules

Take away the clues about context and even photos can be abstract works of art. Add in something that creates scale, something that is identifiable and a known reference point and suddenly meaning starts to take shape.

Blue Balls

But throw in something unexpected or seemingly out of context, and the meaning is probably no clearer.

Monkey Bars

[All these photos were taken at the retro bowling night with the Sydney Photobloggers. The ball storage racks were all lit with different coloured lights, making cool patterns of the chrome bars. I'm sure the other patrons wondered what the hell I was doing, and at one point a dude came and took one of the balls away while I was in mid-shot. Making art is hard yo!]
