In this website you'll come across ICM and blur. Whereas they're both specialised abstracting techniques, this page aims to collect shots straight from the camera without any serious post-processing. Still I hope they make you wonder: OK, but what is it? So, I will faithfully add explanations if necessary.

The upholstery and a cushion on a couch gave this couch a colourful appearance. The white streaks are caused by reflecting light on the edge of the wood.

Rock man

There's a small grove nearby my holiday rental home where local stonemasons used to get their material from to build houses. I see a man with a cap on and a cigarette dangling form his mouth.

Easy one: autumn leaves in one of the canals in Utrecht, just opposite 'Tante Sien' for those who know the place.

The Voorlinden Museum in Wassenaar is one of our favourites. It's a privately funded museum and that in itself makes it special. Collections are changed a few times per year and the artists are renowned.

La Palma

That La Palma is a volcanic island is something you cannot escape from, wherever you are on the island. Here the coast leaned back a bit so from a steps down to the ocean near Puntagorda I could look back and take this pic. An enormous eruption causing a quarter of the land slide into the sea also accounted for a chemical process, hence the 'unnatural' colours.
