Abstract

logs

Occasionally I see something that I think is interesting to photograph. These include abstracts. A few of these come from nature and are inspiring. Some are objects that are machines and their parts but through neglect or abandonment having been exposed to nature and changed from their pristine surface to abstract patterns and colors.  Some I just liked the lines and shapes.
