“Photography can never be abstract”

“In a strict sense photography can never be abstract, for the camera is incapable of synthetic integration” – Ansel Adams

And I agree. Adams went on to say that what we call abstract is merely a piece of something shown where the viewer interprets it as abstract.
So here we go with a non-abstract image…of a rock.

So a rock, once you know it’s a rock, it cannot be unseen.
