  3. I like the trees and ferns. And you've given me a potential idea...there's some long vines hanging from the trees around here. Maybe I could work something with them...

  4. The barbed wire and the tree branches, both against the sky are true abstracts for me.

  7. I was trying to think if I have something abstract at home, and I came to your post. Love it! You have inspired me! your barbed wire and tire tracks remind me of an Escher poster hanging in one of my kids rooms :)

  8. Love the sand dunes!... btw u asked about mine... rain on a table top is the key... also shooting from an angle helps... natural light is the key.. i never use flash.

  11. Oh I could really enjoy that sand! Something I thought I'd see more of this last week, instead of rain and more rain! All of your photos pop out, especially the blue skies...something I really miss!

  12. Very nice and pretty theme pictures, Alexia. I can 'feel' summer in the air from them. My favorite is the sand with tracks and water pools. It reminded me of White Sands National Park in our New Mexico.

    BTW, it is winter now in N.Z. isn't it? Visiting your land is on our bucket list but seems we just don't get moving that way. Soon, though, I hope.
