Abstracting the Essence

One part of photography I really love is doing abstract photos. Abstract is a pretty broad word meaning different things to different people. What I like is taking something and giving it much greater significance than it's original context-so you can also say exaggerating that element. It can also mean something that loses it's natural state and appears somewhat altered. 50mm lenses generally are good lenses for doing those kind of abstractions as in this case.
