For those of you new to The San Francisco Scene–Seen!, I’ve always had a fondness for creating abstract art photographs by taking extreme closeup shots of an object (usually a mural) in order to make the object unrecognizable, reducing it to color and shape. Recently, this blog has incorporated picture puzzles: You see extreme closeups of a mural, then a picture of the entire mural; your assignment, should you choose to accept it, consists of locating the closeups within the entire mural.
Tonight, we add a little twist.
First, here is the middle section of a new mural at Mission and 8th Street in San Francisco, unless it’s located at Mission and 9th. I really need to start taking better notes.
Funny, isn’t it; the mural itself is already abstract. Now here are six closeups.
And now I present a two-part challenge.
- Locate the closeups within the mural as a whole.
- But wait! How many of these closeups do not belong here? Remember, this is the middle section of the mural. At least one of these pictures came from the left and/or right sections.
This should not prove too hard; I doubt that any of my little games have. But I hope that they amuse you at least a little. Have fun.
