Phoneography and Non-SLR Challenge: Abstraction

Abstract Duck

Good morning from a calmer Hastings morning.

Yesterday we had such a stormy day with very strong winds and rain, and freezing temperatures.  There was quite a bit of snow around the country – just a spring storm.  Auckland had no power for a while so I am thankful that I was warm and cosy here in Hastings.

.  I had to go to the dentist and drove past Frimley Park to find branches scattered across the road. It lasted until well into the evening last night.

Thanks for all the well wishes for the dentist.  That went well but I couldn’t eat much all day.  It was actually relatively painless getting the filling done, but it is the sound affects of the drills that get to me.  Ugh!

Anyway onto this challenge by Sally:

This photo was taken back in June this year.  Even though it was totally out of focus I didn’t delete it.  I actually liked the affect.  It just needed some extra affects and colour so I headed to Distressed FX and added a more colourful filter.

Here is the original:

  1. I feel so helpless in the dentist chair. My dentist and his assistant usually chat away and I can’t enter the discussion at all. 😦
    Wish I had kept all those bad photos I took. I keep every other piece of junk … closets full of it. 🙂

    1. I had an exhibition in Austria and Italy about 20 years ago. All the photos were deliberately taken out of focus. Just to be different.
      I also hate it when the dentist and her assistant talk over my head, or even worse sing out of tune to the radio. 🙂
