Punts Parked Alongside

Something a bit more abstract this week. A closeup of two punts on the River Cam. This image was actually taken at the same time as the punts from a couple of weeks ago. I love the straight lines and the synchrony of the two punts - chained up as they were along the river bank. There is something about rows of lines and clean shapes that really excites me in any image (maybe too much I'm not sure!)

I love abstract images and I've included several over the past weeks and months. I also know that these can be an acquired taste. I think I've mentioned in the past how my Dad for example is not a massive fan of those more "different" images. Dad likes a straight forward image. Something where you can tell example what it is. When I show him one of my more abstract images I tend to get a "thats nice....." response - meaning not quite sure what i'm looking at but well done for trying!

While sorting through my latest batch of photographs from Cambridge, of which a large amount are of the aformentioned punts, I realised I had never actually been on one with a camera. I've lived in and around Cambridge for most of my life and apart from a short trip with some friends many years i've only been on a punt (camera or no camera) once. My mid year resolution is to go on a punt at some point this year and will take my camera as well.
