52 Frames Abstract

Fiats are best enjoyed as abstractions.  This mirror-shape called to me as I walked by.

52 Frames Runners-Up: Abstracts

It was a good afternoon of looking for abstract candidates in spite of the sweltering temperatures. They are going up this week to 100F (at least). I think usually abstractedly & tend to see similarly.

These are 3 of the runners-up for the 52 Frames week:Posts Paseo de Montejo

Domingo en el Parque/ Sunday in the Park

It has been awhile since I enjoyed a leisurely street shooting stroll. These were from Sunday around the central square (Parque/Zocalo) of Merida. Tourism central but it’s late March, temps are around 95-100+F and international tourism has slackened.

This week for 52 Frames I used a perfect facade that, for the challenge of a shot “straight out of the camera”, worked w/o adjustments. This is an older shot I found to work on as well and like the mix of colors, shapes.

Man In A Box

Man In A Box

A couple of weeks ago, looking for a “statement” for a 52 Frames challenge; I tried to show the unfortunate placement of a Walmart during the ’80s destruction of 19th c. mansions on the Paseo de Montejo – Merida’s tree-lined, broad avenue. I failed because it is pretty well camouflaged by sculpted screening, set-back, etc. Still an intrusion on the Avenue but I did find this colorful figure in an abstract box.

I was out walking on the Paseo (Merida’s 19th c. version of the Champs Elysees) broad tree- and mansion-lined avenue from the Santa Ana Park to El Monumento de la Patria in the “hotel zone”.
