Photographers can be highly creative with abstract photography as it doesn’t focus on reality. An ordinary photo can be easily turned into an abstract photography, through the creativity of the photographer…

« I Photographed The Vastly Diverse Architecture Of The Netherlands »
By Tobias Gawrisch

tobiasgawrisch02a« Although I’m a german Photographer living in Germany, I’m luckily only living around 60km from the border to the Netherlands.

tobiasgawrisch02bAnd it just so happens that I’m an architectural photographer as well, visiting the Netherlands ever so often.

tobiasgawrisch02cThe modern design and architecture of the Netherlands have always astonished me! It seems that every little town has its own special design. Whether it’s a bridge, a skyscraper, a hotel or some other architectural masterpiece – everywhere you look you’ll find some clever and beautiful modern designs in architecture.

tobiasgawrisch02dI haven’t seen most of this country’s beauty, I’m sure! But what I’ve seen so far makes me want to visit and photograph the Netherlands time and time again! »
