Abstract bounty

When in Leith taking my up and down photos I was drawn to the fabulous colours and abstract shapes as the buildings were reflected on the water that was being lightly rippled by a breeze and some ducks.


I was inspired by Sandie’s 5 in 5 meme to stand for 5 minutes and take lots of shots of the patterns and then choose 5 of them to share.  I’ve missed her October link up but really enjoyed the exercise and will do it again.


I’m sharing these on the Nature Footstep abstract meme too


I love all the abstract effects appearing naturally rather than creating them with pixel magic. 


and I love how the colours are stronger in the reflections than they appear on the buildings


I can imagine these printed up really big on a canvas on the wall.  Do you have a favourite?

I think the 4th is my favourite. What fab photos, they really do deserve to be printed off and put on a wall.

What amazing reflections Helena! I love number one and four especially, and they would make wonderful wall art.

I'm glad you were inspired by '5 in 5' and I do hope you will take some more and join in this month. I look forward to seeing you there!

Gorgeous abstracts!! I love them all, but I think my favourite is the first one. I like the big blocks of colour. And yes, they definitely deserve to be hanging on your wall!
