Abstract Photos

Can you guess what these are pictures of?

Ooooh, these abstracts are so beautiful, Lana! I especially love the first one. Is that a jellyfish perhaps?

P.S. Thanks for your comment - I replied on my site.

Travis Erwin said...

The 2nd one is my fave. They all seem to be water but in what form I'm not sure.

Lauren said...

They are all so beautiful. I love looking at the pictures you post. I have no idea what they are, but I'm bad at guessing stuff like that :).

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm with Travis, that second one is incredible. Looks like light reflected in freshly blown glass but I know that's not what it is. That first one looks a bit alien. Are those your spore threads?

Rick said...

Lana, I'm going to step out here and suggest they are shots from a recently found Stanley Kubrick movie. But whatever they are (probably microscopic algae at a convention), they're stunning.

The first looks like this time when I was like ten and I had a fever (really...I'm not quoting Pink Floyd)....the second I think is that time I ate those Hawaiian Wood Rose seeds and didn't scrape all the strychnine off...while the third, definitely is that time backpacking in the Rockies where I dropped before I even got out of my sleeping bag...I can almost hear "All Along the Watchtower" just looking at it....

The question is: how the hell did you get inside my head to take these???!!!

Erik Donald France said...

Glass, water, oil, all of the above?

Gorgeous shots.

Lana Gramlich said...

I've been enjoying the guesses & will posts the answers w/in the next couple of days.

Christina said...

The way those pictures came out are really interesting. Was it the lens or a special system on the computer?

Miladysa said...

The first - weeds in a pond?

The second - fish?

The third - ice?

All very interesting :D

To Ms Lana Gramlich

You are heartily welcome to my blogs.

The artists always take inspiration from other artists. It's just like a legacy.

I liked your paintings and would be visiting here for seeing more art.

First one...a spider web

Second one...Christmas lights under plastic

Third one... flowers in back of a sheet of water.

Good morning, dear Lana. :D

Hugs, JJ

Dexter said...

very interesting blog...

Avery DeBow said...

I'm going to guess, cracked ice, Christmas lights, and the sky reflected in water.

Best I can do. Not very good with the "eye."

earthtoholly said...

I'm guessing water. The third looks like it has a sky reflection. But I'm not sure about the first and second...not sure where the water is, if it is water. Are you playin' with that fancy-schmancy camera again??? :o)

Lana Gramlich said...

Christina; No special effects have been added to these photos. They are all as my non-SLR digital camera took them.

holly; Nope. These all predate my recent, fancy schmancy camera, actually.



HERE'S WHAT THEY ARE...

1. Sunlight reflecting off the Tchefuncte River onto the hull of a boat.

2. Yellow light shining through a glass block.

3. Reflection of a sunset in Lake Pontchartrain taken at a diagonal angle.

Thank you for playing. Hope at least one or two were a surprise. :)

Lana Gramlich said...

(BTW, when I say "glass block," I'm talking about the kind they build walls out of.)

Shauna Roberts said...

I was surprised on all three! I would have guessed all were from the recent snow storm. I guess I have winter on the mind.

Rick said...

so the Algae at a convention thing was a little off?

Michelle (artscapes) said...

Darn... I posted too late! I would have had 2 out of three!!

Lana Gramlich said...

Shauna; Yes, you must! *LOL*

Rick; Just a little. ;)

Michelle; I would have expected as much...as an artist, you've got "the eye." ;)

Travis said...

Looks like various forms of ice.

Sidney said...

Wow, I love the second one particularly.

JR's Thumbprints said...

I thought I saw bird beaks in your second photo; No, no, no, I did see bird beaks!

Mark said...

Ok, so I didn't get to guess - but I would have got them all right. :-)

Lana Gramlich said...

Travis; The answers are in my comment, above.

Sidney; Thanks! That one seems pretty popular.

JR; Bird beaks? Did an inmate slip something into your coffee? *LOL* ;)

Mark; I know YOU would have. ;)

Doson said...

Hmmm.. The third one looks like, somewhere in da beach..
Pretty lil late bt looks like i am ???;)

eric1313 said...

This is what I was talking about in the last post. Amazing shots.

Great eye for art!

Lana Gramlich said...

Doson; It's all good. ;) Better late than never!

Eric; Thank you kindly. :)
