To me, using a mobile phone to take photographs allows me to experiment with totally different objects from a variety of different angles. I like getting in close, and trying to take an image through the object if possible. It isn’t the subject on the other side of the object that’s important, but how it appears through the object. Debbie’s One-Word photo challenge for this week is ‘Abstract’ (which I’m pleased to be re-joining after a couple of weeks away), and the following photos are all of the Living Room here in the Mansion, taken through a blue paperweight. I feel like I’m underwater when I look at them, surrounded by currents and bubbles, and yes, Whalesong… and being Piscean that feels very comfortable indeed (apart from the fact that in real life I don’t like being submerged in water – most abstract!)

  3. Interesting. I have always wanted to learn scuba so I could go down under and swim with the fish.really a wonderland down under the sea.

    1. I like watching underwater documentaries, Beverly, but panic if I’m submerged, so it would be no good for me to scuba!
