Abstract photo of Missianah, a full ginger Tabby with oyster patterning (not that you can tell here of course). She couldn’t resist this opportunity: an open car, and to see her get in and out was an absolute laugh. She’s a big girl and it was a relatively small gap with little foothold. Curiousity killed the cat? Not this time! This was just a sticky-beak. Besides, cats come fully equipped with 9 lives, so they’re better prepared to cope with life’s little adventures than we are! (Abstract/Watercolours effect).

Photo taken with Canon IXUS 80 IS and edited with Lightzone. SIMPLICITY is my niche!

Original Image: Leo and Missy

First Edited Version: Curiosity (satisfied)

I love anything that is unusual, unique, or just plain odd, and that’s the sort of image I try to capture. I’m so far from being the world’s best photographer it’s not funny, but I do have the photographer’s ‘eye’ and am more than proficient at capturing the images I see in my world. Thanks for taking the time to view my portfolio. Feel free to leave a message and say G’day.

    Fantastically worked Neil !!! , with superb colors , Trev

  • Many thanks Trev. You can see how shoddy the original photo was (I really should pay more attention when taking photos), so abstract works really well on an otherwise useless image. I like it :-)

    Neil, I love this ♥. Super cool x :O) reminds me of my own experimentations too. Isnt it fab when you take something that perhaps you might have discarded and turn it in to Art.

    Fabulous colour too x

  • It certainly is. The duds can be the best artwork, I think because there’s no real expectation of them. I could only improve on the original photo, no matter what I did :-)

    the white part of the black and white cats neck now looks like a cow face, lol :O) that’s neat. I agree its very satisfying to know even when we make a mistake all is not lost :)

  • Hey, it does. I love abstract and surrealistic art forms because they appeals to our sense of eidetic vision (I think that’s the term?)… because we don’t really know what we’re looking at, so we start to descry shapes and figures that we can relate to. I have wooden floor boards at home. It’s amazing what I can see in them :-)

    I have a wooden door on our bathroom and saw something in the grain only the other day, I love it when that happens x

    following your mention of Eidetic vision :O) i was lead to this which grabbed my attention, not sure if it interests you ? but here it is anyway .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46ycu3JFRrA i found it incredible. Have a great day Neil, its been nice to chat to you on here, I feel like we have a lot in common :) are you on facebook ? you can find me there x

  • Thanks for this link Heidi. I actually saw this on TV a couple of years ago. She is an amazing woman, and the work she has done in the field of animal psychology and welfare (cows) is awesome. A friend of mine that I have known for over 30 years told me she has Autism, and both her sons have been diagnosed with Aspergers. Her brother, my oldest school friend, also has it. I never knew, but it doesn’t matter to me because they are the same mates I have known and loved always, and it explains to me why they are so talented and intelligent. I’ve posted this like to both my friends. Don’t know if they’ve seen it or not. I know I have Epilepsy, but I often wonder if I have something else that’s undiagnosed. Little traits make me wonder sometimes. Will look for you on facebook Heidi :-)

    Your abstractions are truly abstract. Interesting. I like that you show the before pic!

  • I don’t think I could have gone wrong with this pic, because the original was such a failure… I mean, just look at it… it’s rubbish! The original photo did however, teach me an important lesson, and that’s not to delete shots from my camera. The worst photos can lead to some of the most original artwork. I love these two abstract, and I couldn’t have done them without the original flop! :-)
