Weekly Photo Challenge: Abstract

According to the Tate Gallery, “abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead uses shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect”.

I think this qualifies. It was taken in front of the huge aquarium inside Dubai Mall, and illustrates what happens when you have to use a long exposure in a dimly-lit space and somebody barges into you just as you press the shutter.


The smaller image below shows what  it would have looked like without the introduction of the third-party camera shake. Frankly, I prefer the abstract version (it’ll probably come as no surprise to  learn that I like tie-dye too).
