the aerator in the campground pond pushes the residue to the edge where I took this shot of an interesting image.

looks like one of those oil filled projections they used to use back in the 60's or was that the 70's. I can see it now projected onto the go-go dancers at the local discotheque, mini skirts, short blonde hair, doin' the "hitch hike" to the sounds of the Mamas & the Papas.

cheers

This is a wonderful abstract, Bob! So much to see here. It almost looks like zebra patterns. LOL! Really, I like this so much. You have a unique perspective on things, and I love seeing what you share with us.

I won't bother pretending, I'm really not big on abstract.
But I like this.

CC, "those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end". I can see it now, especially the dancers and skirts.

thank you so much for the too kind words, the way the water was rotating it reminded me of a lava lamp, way before your time I would imagine. Take care...

Cool shot, although I was expecting a portrait of me, since the title is one of the terms of endearment my wife aims my way.

Seriously, interesting and creative bit of photography.

Great eye to see this, Bob. I bet so many would walk right by this. You're taken scum and made it art!

Lori, I decided I would try and take photos of things right in front of me, basically look for a unique photo. I like what you have been doing with your past macro work and now photographing the hands and using a tent for more even distributed light. Thanks so much for the kind words, always appreciated. Bob

I do like this image Bob, personally I would have cropped it but it is good the way it is. All this talk about the 60's and 70's, discos and lava lamps...... Am I getting old?

John, I didn't know whether to list this under abstract or not since I didn't change anything, but it is a bit different. Thanks for commenting, always appreciated.

Well Jer, never heard of a loving title quite like that, but at least she calls you something cute I remember being called things a lot worse, "When I Was Young"

Thanks for looking Heinrich, my wife and I often talk about what happened to time, seems like we blinked and it was 45 years later. I know something happened though, I have the scars to prove it. take care..
