  1. Wonderful job taking a small subject and making so many wonderful compositions! The two with the embossed bolts are especially intriguing!

  3. Wow, I’m amazed! I kept wondering what could this thing be as I scrolled slowly from one photo to the other. It bears out the quote used at the start of your post and underscores the thought that greater inspection of an object or person can reveal more than meets the eye.

  5. Really wonderful, Jane! It’s crazy how sudsy the white marks look and how three-dimensional they appear in the first photo. The restrained palette in #2 is calmly beautiful. I think that’s my favorite. I also find #3 and #7 appealing because of those bolts. The Abbott quote is a good one and perfect for this. I hope you do more quotidian abstracts, if I can call them that. Have a good weekend!

  9. If everything was left unlabeled, this is what I see … #1 and #5, probably coral. #3 and #8, something gross that’s best left unsaid. #2 and #7, dried up whatever. #4, worse than #3 and #8. #6, encrusted bug. The reality view, you probably don’t have enough wipes to clean your hands, LOL. πŸ™‚

  14. Ha, this is something beautiful ~ the photos definitely, but more impressive is your eye and how you can find beauty anywhere you look πŸ™‚ That is a gift, especially these days. Wonderful work yet again, Jane, amazed at what you can see.

  21. Very intriguing set of images. Fascinating to see all of the details you were able to abstract from this guardrail. Proves that you have to look carefully at your surroundings to see all of its beauty. (Suzanne)

  24. This is such a creative take on an ordinary guardrail, and seemed like you really felt Berenice Abbott’s quote. Like Terri said, at first I thought I was looking at water. Sometimes I think we have to slow down and have a closer look to see what we’re looking at. You got a wonderful eye, Jane. Hope you are doing well.

    • Thanks so much, Mabel. I was so surprised how much they look like ocean foam. I found myself getting lost in photographing these patterns and textures- a perfect escape. And yes, I hold Berenice Abbott’s quote close to my heart. ❀️ Doing well, thanks, and I hope things in Melbourne are good. I was in touch with my friend in Fitzroy after the earthquake. She said it was quite scary. Hope you fared all right.

  32. Whoa, Jane! At first glance, I’m envisioning you leaning over the guard rail looking into the ocean, then getting closeups of the tide. Then I thought frost? Then the full picture–amazing. Gorgeous photography and thanks for sparking our imaginations!

  33. This is what I love about photography. I notice these little details, and the camera lets me capture what I see and show the world. It’s similar to the type of writing I find myself enjoying… Intimate descriptions of mundane things
