Actually I thought it was very abstract :-)
Skim milk
Nothing added
Nothing taken out

Skimmed milk doesn't happen. It's whole cream milk with the cream Taken Out

Yeah, that tickled me too. I guess there maybe some here who believe milk comes from the supermarket! :D

Minds think differently and OhLook will no doubt pounce on me but to my mind, knowing how far from reality or truth that statement on the milk box is, then it fits my definition of abstract

Abstract is from a Latin word meaning "pulled away, detached," and the basic idea is of something detached from physical, or concrete, reality.

The claim on that milk carton is miles away from reality. It just can't happen.

You rang?

Okay, I get your point. I was considering abstraction in the sense usually applied to art. The milk boxes show up as realistic and concrete. "Nothing taken out" struck me also as a strange thing to say about milk with the cream removed. I guess the justification is that if you start with skim milk and consider it the zero point, then you can say nothing was taken out.

Pagman, you sure started an interesting discussion here. Thank you!

OhLook I realised later I should have reworded in reference to your input.
Apologies I certainly wasn't goading you, inciting an argument etc.
I also agree the photo is not fitting in with intentions of the photographic thread.
My comment was a light hearted one in respect to the contents of the cartons.

Some people actually have no idea how you get milk. Well some here don't.

Conceptually abstract? :lol:

This is really beautiful. The lines, softness, form, and color work very well here.
Nice work!

The "Smoke" photos a few pages back got my juices flowing to give them a try. I've always wanted to give them a shot but, I know it can seem they have been done to death. I personally still think the look cool, so I did my own with a little extra flare.

here's one carefully prepared  :p
What one gets when walking around with a camera in hand
It may well self destruct in 24 hours :-)

Very well prepared, indeed.
Actually, it looks quite intriguing. I see a boat and some spinning thoughts :)

I did think it intriguing. It's not the first time that's happened and I kept another as it was just a swirl of grass.

some spinning thoughts Oh dear!!!
wife says I spend too much time deep in thought :lol:

I suspect abstracts are a 'feature' of this camera. I have one here also, done the same way. :oops:
