I’ve been busy with work this week, since I have a deadline soon and only now I finally found some time to have a look at the pictures I’ve been taking the last few days. This one certainly falls in the category “almost black and white” again and I was rather undecided whether I should go with this abstract or with a self-portrait. In the end I decided that I’ve been necessarily focusing on myself too much these last few days, since I’m writing a PhD application right now. Trying to portray yourself in the right light necessarily turns the spotlights inside and that can be a bit much sometimes. Yes, abstract is the way to go before I drive myself mad with all the self-portraying.

    • I bet you’ll find it funny if I say that it is actually a picture of the fan extractor in my kitchen 😉

  3. nice, it s a good new idea for a project, not km zero but “abstract in a few meters” ! Not necessary to go out of home! Limits always increase creativity!

  4. Wow never would have guessed it is a part of your kitchen. I was thinking it was a sun visor in a car. Not even close. Cool shot Verena!

  5. I think you know I like the abstract aspects of photography. Before reading what the image was my thoughts were it was the grill on car stereo speakers. Glad you chose this to post.
