A pile of wine barrel staves and rings at Casanel Vineyards in Leesburg, Virginia.
Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is: Abstract.
Our instructions: This week, turn the concrete and familiar into something new and mysterious.
Let me get this right out of the way . . . I don’t get abstract art. I try to get it, but I don’t (kind of like 18th century English poetry). I took four semesters of Art History in college. I enjoyed it immensely — right up until we were supposed to appreciate a pyramid of used tuna cans as edgy and complicated art. That was my last semester of Art History. The line between rancid tuna cans and art just never blurred for me. Plus, I decided if it looks like something I could do . . . it’s not that impressive (and I can make a wicked stack of used tuna cans).
I took this photo on a visit to Casanel Vineyards in Leesburg, Virginia. As I walked around the perimeter of the vineyards, I came across this pile of wine barrel staves and rings . . . and thought it was pretty cool.
In an abstract (non-complicated) kind of way.
