Street/ 12

A departure from my usual street photography… Abstract

on the pavement

on the pavement



  1. A departure from street photography, but yet again not. I can see so many things in that abstraction. The feet and legs keep it on the street, though!

    • Thanks, Angeline! I thought exactly that, the feet and legs kept it on the street…. It had been raining earlier thar day, and I was hoping for reflections in puddles. But that thin little puddle was all I could find, so I needed to come up with something else. 🙂

  2. That is a strange one Sue (the design that it), but bang on the theme all the same.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I just had to smile at the thought of you stopping to photograph this, Sue. You must have been delighted with the result. I love it. 🙂

    • Having been initially disappointed at the dearth of puddles and reflections, I was concentrating on the reflection of the building in the puddle, then saw the legs – “that’s my shot”, I thought!! 😃

    • Meant to add – I’m sure passers by think I’m a bit odd!!!

  4. Certainly makes you look twice Sue – very abstract – is that really a reflection in the water?

  5. Suzanne

    That’s fascinating. I was scrolling through my WordPress reader while having a conversation with someone in the room when your photo grabbed my attention. Great stuff. I went abstract today with my landscape photography. I’ll post some later.

  6. This shot certainly made me look hard to work out what the white was in the puddle, still couldn’t work it out till I saw your reply to a previous comment Sue. So you have achieved the abstract theme…

  7. call me mad- I saw a mummifed cat!! Great photo – it is so unusual Sue!!

  8. What a delightful departure! Wonderfully seen and of course captured. It’s almost like a different dimension coming out of that reflection, maybe enhanced by the contrast to its surroundings, between light and dark.

    • Many thanks, Otto! I do think some passers-by thought I was a little mad….and I had a conversation with one of my friends at my Photographic Society last evening on that very subject!

  9. You mean it’s not an Egyptian Mummy? 🙂 I didn’t spot the reflection till after I’d made this dumb observation, Sue 🙂
