Abstract Photo - 5/21/14 "Silver and Blue"

NF Photography prompt: Abstract Photo

Often when I create abstracts, I find one of my photos that is ugly, a mistake, blurred, or that I have no practical use for and challenge myself to make something artistic from it. I have no idea why I snapped the photo my abstract is based on. Perhaps it was the mystery of what was attached to the post and removed, leaving only scraps of tape.
"Silver and Blue"
(my high school's colors)
Cropped, enhanced, manipulated, reworked.
Original photo taken at a local park from above
a painted, square wooden post with duct tape
and other blue tape stuck to the top. The
background is shredded bark mulch.

I thought it was a quilt, but then the top layer is obviously duct tape...
I much prefer your manipulated version to the original!!

Well that is just awesome ... I would have never imagined what the original would be. The colors and the cropping are perfect. Bravo!
