New Tumblr blog

Hello everyone! In the past few years I've developed a growing fascination with abstract art. Although I've always appreciated the genre, it's just recently that I find myself really admiring the creative exploration of form, color, composition and texture that so many great artists have achieved in paint. At the same time, I am obsessed with current technology and the possibilites of image making at our finger tips. Like most, I'm constantly fiddling with my smartphone, taking pictures and playing with a variety of image editing apps. And not only is the taking and editing of images intoxicating, but the ability to share these images instantly is astounding. We essentially have virtual galleries at our fingertips.I've been exploring abstraction in photography in my down time and have started a tumblr blog called "Experiments in Seeing" which can be found here.If you are interested, then please check it out. I also post consistantly on instagram.Thanks!
