Ireland can lend itself to abstract images in part because the Guinness is so good.  When you can’t focus properly, you just call it an abstract blur and say you did it intentionally.

Actually, it is easy to try these.  As long as you have a long exposure of 1/2 second or longer, you just point the camera at something tall, like trees or buildings, and tilt the camera upward slowly during the course of the exposure.  You get a lot of duds, but a few that look really different and interesting.
