Creating an abstract photo


About two weeks ago, I was having lunch in a Scottsdale restaurant that I had never been to before.  I was comfortably seated in a tastefully contemporary dining room and while I was waiting for my food I started noticing all the little decorative details around me.  That's when I saw that this shot might create a very interesting abstract photo and I must say I was pleased with the results.


Can you tell from this photo where I found my abstract inspiration?  The restaurant is called simply "Bobby's" and when I saw that it was a Mancuso restaurant, I had to give it a try.  The Mancuso family has been serving outstanding Italian cuisine for many years in the Phoenix area.  This new restaurant also serves as a jazz club with music nightly in the second floor lounge.


The other half of the dining room is decorated with red glass and a wall of photos of musicians all named "Bob".  Very clever.  Oh yes, the food was delicious!

Reminder:  The theme for July 1st is Celebrating Summer!

What a great place! Fun and funky. Your "abstract" is perfect and right up my alley. Of course, I all my shots abstract 'cause they're all blurry! :)

What a fabulous place; the family is very innovative and creative. The different forms and shapes in the top phone make it very special.

Your 'abstract' shot is fantastic! And I can recognize some of the Bobs on the wall. :-)
