abstract image

This is one of the first images taken with my new (old) Kodak Duaflex camera purchased on eBay. As you can see, it's an abstract image composed primarily of light, shadow and texture. I'm very pleased with this photo. I considered revealing the nature of the object captured in this image, but it detracts from the aesthetics of the image if you know how it was derived. Let's just agree to call it "art" and leave it at that. (Actually, if you're really curious, check out my flickr site).

I like it! It reminds me a lot of the abstract photographs of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy:

You're right! It DOES look like Moholy-Nagy! Very astute observation. Thanks for the input.

The recent heart image you posted on your Flickr site reminds me of one of my favorite album covers:

Thanks once more for providing references to other similar work. I checked the album cover and did find the similarities to be noteworthy. As any egomanical photographer would respond, I like my image better. At least mine is a little "gentler" with its absence of blood . . .
