Very flowing abstract. I like it!
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Kay. I`m so glad you like it. (:o)

No need to explain.
You finally found Lawrence taking his meal in the Bedouin tent erected beside the whispering sand-hill. He didn't appreciate your intrusion, so fled...
Salome, his female racing camel, rent the flimsy tent material as she gave chase...

Nice, Rosalyn...I like pictures that leave a little to the imagination of the viewer.
Rosalyn Sears: LOL! Oh Ray, I nearly fell off my seat laughing at your wonderful descripion! `Salome, his female racing camel` - you have a priceless way with words. (:o)
Probably the most beautiful abstract I've seen Rosalyn ! Wow, I love the grain on it and its B&W... a mysterious picture indeed.
Rosalyn Sears: Hi Florence, so glad you like it! If you want an explanation, I have just given one to Paul. (:o)
Very beautyful abstact Rosalyn. I like the texture, the transparency and the geometry. What could this well be?
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Richard. I have just given a full explanation to Paul, if you want to know exactly what it is. (:o)

So strange, like smoke floating around my cigarette or a immaterial stuff in a Salome's dream. Dance for love ? ...
Like an x-ray of a circus tent.
Rosalyn Sears: Ah, that was my other possibe theme! I was torn between that, and the idea of a seductive dance. As you have not guessed at what this really is, I am thinking you have a pretty good idea, and are maintaining the mystery. Thank you. (:o)

smoke from a joss stick or the dance of the seven veils ,nice one.
Rosalyn Sears: Glad you like it, Mick. I explained fully in my reply to Paul, but I think that some people are happy not to know. (:o)

I can't seem to wrap my head around this. It's such an interesting image. Can't wait to hear what it is.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Scarlett. (:o)

Let me put you out of your misery. We have a half-glazed front door, with small panes of glass. Some of the panes have `bullseyes`, or `boules` (I think that is the proper name for them), they look like the bottom of of bottle, if you know what I mean. The sunlight coming through the door is concentrated through these bullseyes and throws some interesting light patterns on the floor, walls or internal doors - depending on the time of day. This was very late in the afternoon last week. So low winter sun, producing a long, soft light pattern on a painted white door. I took a portrait photograph of it, cropped it to the edge of the pattern, and flipped it to landscape. I then converted it to a negative. Just a bit of fun, really, but I loved the soft fluid lines, and the feeling that it was a sketch, quickly done in charcoal.

I do like that... Soft sensual !
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Roland. I loved the soft, fluid lines. (:o)

Full explanation in my replies to Paul and Scarlett - if you want to know exactly what it is. (:o)

So fluid and lovely, beautiful abstract.

It reminds me of something the artist Cristo would come up with, Roz! It DOES leave so much to the imagination---enough so that we don't need to know. It's WONderful, especially in B&W, and that surprises me.
Rosalyn Sears: What a lovely thing to say, Ginnie! If you want a full explanation, Ginnie, I have just given one to Paul and Scarlett (though I suspect you are happy not to know). I will just say that I flipped this one to negative because I like the fact that it gave the effect of a swift charcoal sketch. (:o)

Roz, perfect, I am just now making up a story in Dutch what will fit in perfectly with this abstract, LOVE it
Rosalyn Sears: I am so pleased you like it, Astrid. I think there are lots of possible stories. (:o)

oh Ray, oh Ray. "Salome, the female racing camel..." I thought I'd die laughing right in front of my monitor.
Nice to see a change of pace, Rosie. I don't even attempt to guess what it is, and honestly don't care much. I'll just go with the flow and enjoy the grace of lines.

Rosalyn Sears: Ray`s description was so funny! He has a great imagination and a wonderful way with words. It was the flowing lines in this that attracted me, and I have only given a full explanation to those who have asked for it. Glad you like it! (:o)
Very nice....I'm thinking...drawing, smoke, veil, music, dance..it's a likey for me, the first one in weeks smile

This is an inspiration to me
Rosalyn Sears: Aksel, I am so happy that you like this one. I am twice as happy if you have gained some inspiration from it. (:o) If you feel you want to know exactly what it is, I have given a full explanation to Paul and Scarlett.
Great photo Roz - thought I would restore the balance with the key words from Wilde's play...

SALOME I am waiting until my slaves bring perfumes to me and the seven veils, and take from off my feet my sandals.


HEROD Ah, thou art to dance with naked feet! 'Tis well! 'Tis well! Thy little feet will be like white doves. They will be like little white flowers that dance upon the trees . . . .

I guess we all know what happens next!
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you so much for that extract - it is perfect! (:o)
super super stuff Rosalynsmile love to hear the answer....tim
Rosalyn Sears: Hi Tim. Really glad you like it. (:o)

I've no idea what it is Ros, but I'm intrigued.
Rosalyn Sears: Good, that was the whole idea. (:o)

Very intruiging how you've managed to keep everyone bedazzled smile What could this be?
Nice job Rosalyn wink
Rosalyn Sears: I think I was getting a bit hung up on the shortfalls of my photographic techniques this week, with my bird shots, so I felt a change of pace was required. I decided to was time to exercise my imagination instead. (:o)

There is a full explanation in my replies to Paul and Scarlett, if you want to know exactly what it is, but I think some people prefer not to know.
