My entry for Paula’s black and white Sunday last week resulted in quite a few guesses, mostly snakeskin or some kind of wood. It was a close-up section of the trunk of this Mexican Grass Tree – a spectacular plant from north-eastern Mexico that, when mature, sports a foot wide trunk and a large sphere of long, stiff, square-edged, bluish-green leaves.
Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is all about the Abstract things we see all around us in normal everyday items. Often relating to or denoting art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but rather seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, colours, and textures.
As someone who adores looking for patterns and textures and shapes this is right up my street.
I love how the gentle motion of the water causes ripples that distort the reflections of the boat masts. Mylor Harbour, Cornwall.
