Abstract Family

I have a sweet friend over at Starshine Chic who wrote this really clever post about taking photos of simple things and turning them into art. Check it out, if you like, but come right back. :}

I was so intrigued by the idea that I just started snapping interesting pictures…you know…

of anything and everything…to see where it went.

Let me just warn you–if you try this, and you should, because it’s dang fun—

you may just find yourself looking at everything around you…

with an odd little tilt to your head…

and suddenly, the strangest things will begin to look like art…LETTER art. And all it takes is a bit of flipping and a little cropping to help everyone see things–the way you do.

See for yourself.

“F”

“A”

“M”

“I”

“L”

“Y”

What do you think? Cool–eh?

Try it–and be prepared to suddenly see things very differently.

Good luck!

I’m off to find a pretty little frame…and amaze people.

heh.

  1. I would say you have too much time on your hands but I know better. That sounds like something fun to do with the kids. 😉

  2. I LOVE doing this! It’s such a wonderful way to appreciate the world around you in a new and original way. I trained myself early, unintentionally, when my parents would give me a disposable camera for our vacations. They’d get the camera developed and look at me funny, like, “why is my child taking pictures of table legs and not Mickey Mouse?” I’ve got a whole collection of photos of interesting lamps and lighting fixtures that all trace back to the Dancing Waiter Lamp of Reno, NV. I love them! Everybody should do this!

  3. Do your abstracts make letters or just interesting shapes? I really love the idea of spelling something with it. So fun!

  4. I could see this being really fun to do on family vacation! Just think, you could wander around finding letters that would work for where you were, your last name or other fun words! 😀 Fun idea!
