Abstracting reality part 7: miscellaneous situations

Of the recurring topics in my photography, abstract images tend to stand out. This has inspired me to write a series of blog posts on the subject, as seen through my lay-man's eyes (I never received any formal training on photography). In these posts, I will tackle the following six (not mutually exclusive) themes: distorted reflections, architectural abstracts, wear and tear, zooming in, abstracted art, and miscellaneous situations. A general introduction was posted here; the first contribution (on distorted reflections) was posted here, the second contribution (on architectural abstracts) was posted here, the third contribution (on wear and tear) was posted here, the fourth contribution (on zooming in) was posted here, the fifth contribution (on abstracted art) was posted here.

Miscellaneous situations refers to pictures that do not fall under the first five themes themes (or at least less clearly). What they have in common is that you can encounter these opportunities all around you if you keep an open eye.
