Monchrome Abstract

Uploaded: November 21, 2020 | Entered: November 21, 2020 18:38:14


I shot the image that served as the basis for this image in April of this year soon after the start of the pandemic when we were being advised to stay indoors as much as possible and I was trying to find things to shoot here in my apartment. Among the things I experimented with was shooting prints of some of my photos through an a heavy glass bowl with a bubble like pattern. To create this image, I took one of those shots, distorted it in PS and then converted it to black and white. Voila.
