Until yesterday, I've been feeling impeded in the way that I usually do photography. For one thing, it's scorching hot in the United Arab Emirates right now (e.g., an average of 40-45 degrees Celsius); so, forget about doing outdoor pictures — especially when you have a little toddler! Last night, I decided to use this constraint to get a little creative with some everyday, mundane objects in my flat. I considered Photoblog.com's weekly theme of Composition — particularly the tip of "Shoot[ing] from a Different Point of View". By doing so, I focused on the aesthetic properties of the objects (rather the associations we usually make with these objects) and created some abstract images, which you will hopefully enjoy as well.
Let's see if you can guess what these objects are... I'll give you a little clue: all these pictures were created by putting objects inside or on top of a lamp that I have, with a hollow cylindrical lampshade.
I probably looked like a kook while shooting these images, but it was a fun experiment that allowed me to practice composition, among other aspects of photography.
