Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Abstract:Pure Light And Form

My recent post about abstract categories got me thinking about the fact that I don't usually make abstracts that fall into the "solely light and shape with no connection to reality" category. So, when I was photographing at Phipps Conservatory this weekend, I was determined to make one.

What is it? Well, given the abstract category, it doesn't really matter in terms of viewing the photograph. But, if you are curious....there was a display of plants (I neglected to note what kind) with large and long roots hanging down from the ceiling. The image is of these hanging roots with the camera being moved up and down during the exposure.
