Returning home one afternoon, this pattern of light and shadow on our front steps caught my eye. The hues actually shifted from warm to cool in the scene.

  1. Cracking shot April! All those lines and the light dark thing going on I REALLY like.

  2. Thank you, Stephen!

  3. April, this abstract requires of me some stretching of my imagination to see what the subject actually is. Shadows have a way of disguising things, and you’ve played upon this very well.

    Hugs, Flo

  4. Some people say the subject in an abstract image should not be recognizable. I personally enjoy images which at first appear to be abstractions but on closer examination reveal the underlying “reality”. That’s my reward for viewing carefully!
