Abstract Photo - 5/14/14 "Neutral Textures"

NF Photo has an weekly photo prompt for abstract photos.
"Neutral Textures"
In this case, I snapped the photo accidentally and

moved at the same time, so it was blurred as well.
I blurred this one even more, adjusted the colors, added
the perception of depth and texture, then rotated it.
My intention was to make it look more like a painting than a photo.

Many of the photos I take that turn out to be "abstract" were mistakes.  Perhaps I snapped a photo when I wasn't intending to or I ended up with a photo so blurred that one can't determine what the image was supposed to be.  As an artist, I save those that look interesting and that I think I might be able to use.

Now I've found the perfect reason to post them.
This is the original photo which I mistakenly took in my
home office/art studio. The darkest slanted shape is a doorway.
Almost everything else (except the walls and ceiling)
consists of art projects and supplies.
Like many artists, I'm organizationally impaired.

thanks for joining :)

I think your work is very pleasing. I love the color and softness you created.
I too save a lot of "accidents" as I can see I will find use for them sometime and I mostly do. Sooner or later. It is fun. :)

I am flying out the door, but wanted to come over and see your abstract. This is awesome ... so suggestive in many different ways. I will come back and look more when I have time. Sorry my pictures didn't come up ... not sure what happened. It does do that to me as well on occasion and I reboot my computer which seems to help. Thanks for stopping by ...

Great abstract! And it's nice to know I'm not the only one who creates my abstract by this "technique"!
