Really good contributions this week. I'm still trying for a halfway normal life. Household disruption makes it too hard to set up scenes like Pete's and Renata's. The painters covered the kitchen counters with protective plastic film, so no more engineered-quartz backgrounds for a while.

I went out and found some of that ever-popular photographic subject, peeling paint.

Oh, so sorry to hear that you are still dealing with the remodeling job; I'm pretty sure that when everything is over you will find some peace of mind and will enjoy your gorgeous new kitchen.
That peeling paint shot is really cool...at first I thought it was some food :) Seriously. It has a look of a food bar with some chocolate coating :) So, what is it? Intriguing.

Thank you, Renata. It's really peeling paint! It was on a corrugated metal surface on the property of a plumbing contractor's business, next to the sidewalk. I thought the photo looked kind of landscapey.

Just as well it wasn't a painter contractors site... looks like a case of missing undercoat! Well done...

Nice one Oh. Who knew peeling paint could be so intriguing.

Thanks. You're right, it'd be a poor advertisement if these were painters. In fairness, the surface has a western exposure and gets a lot of sun.

Hello everybody!

Sorry to have been absent this week. I've had the worst cold ever and have been in bed for days. However, I'm on the mend now. I just looked at all the contributions and they're great! Creativity was flowing this week! There are too many to individually address, but I enjoyed every image.

Since I couldn't go out, I looked for inspiration at home. Couldn't find anything and then thought I would make my own abstracts, using some sheets of white paper. Some are more successful than others, but here are a few of my attempts. I have more than two but don't feel like uploading them to ipernity and then embedding them here (so I can include 8 at a time), so I will need two separate posts.

Levina, you've outdone yourself again.

The "something not paper"--is it cloth? That looks like stitching.

Thanks very much, OhLook.
The last shot is of my red leather sofa and that is a seam. :)

Good going, Pete. I like the woven thing particularly.

This interpretation of the week's theme may be stretching it. Don't worry, the theme will bounce back. This is a sketch of an abstract shape to be made as a contrasting-color inlay on the forthcoming kitchen floor. Most of floor, whitish; this and one other curvy shape, red.

The brown you see is an ancient layer of flooring that was under a few others.

Fantastic shots bt all this week. I have been struggling
a bit with this one.

Here are a couple from me....not sure if they are really abstract or not.

Nice ones, Pete, OhLook and Kevin.

OhLook, a "whitish" floor with a couple of curvy, abstract shapes in red sounds great! Can't wait to see the end result of all the hard work.
