I’ve been busy lately, but I’ve managed just enough time to share this hypnotic new addition to my latest optical photography series, “Laundratopia”! You can find the first optical post here. In this playful series, objects associated with doing laundry are suddenly transformed into striking architectural, optical illusions!

What does this object remind you of?

I’ve been missing the wonderful WordPress community! I hope to visit your websites and enjoy your work as well!

Have a great weekend!

     I’ve decided to continue my abstract “Blind Faith” series with some new optical additions. This “O” formation was relatively easy to do and rounds out the other works quite nicely. If you move your screen up and down, the illusion is complete. The rings of the “O” appear to vibrate from the center. I’ll add other creations as time allows. In the meantime, enjoy a peaceful and wonderfully creative weekend.

“H” is the eighth letter of the alphabet. It was the layout of the first house I lived in. You can imagine my surprise when after minutes of carefully arranging sections of blind photos a familiar yet distant character emerged. I hadn’t planned the “H”, but somehow it’s a small though significant part of my experience. Even stranger still, it’s the eighth addition to my series.

Feel free to check out the whole series here and tell me what you think!

One summer afternoon, we decided to put unwanted items in storage. We took a trip to Lowes Hardware Store, picked up some heavy duty moving boxes and headed for our local Target for packing supplies. When we got home, we started to assign a number of books, clothes etc. to their designated stations. As we sealed each box with tape, I noticed the elongated bubbles that formed beige rivers on the surface. Imagining this was an aerial view of a mysterious landscape, I carefully composed my shot. Initially, I had two different versions of this photograph. However, I was more pleased with the strength of the lines and texture of the back and white one.

Chilly winter weather sent us to the camping section of our local superstore. After traveling down a few isles, we found the perfect material to cover our windows to keep out the cold. It was thin, lightweight, reflective and easy to transport. Once we got it home, we had to unfold it and trim to fit the individual areas we wanted to cover. During that laborious process, I spotted the perfect opportunity to take a shot. The light was breaking on it’s shiny surface as it collected the many colors of the room. After a little bit of strategic photo editing, the secret life of this object emerged. The end result looked like a colorful, heavily textured abstract painting. New additions to this series will be added in the weeks to come. Be sure to check the my website for more details.

This is the week of Christmas Eve and the fourth week of our Christmas Countdown! Here’s a favorite object my sister gave me a couple of years ago because she thought it might make a great picture!
