This one made me think. It would have been easy to obtain abstract with a photo editor or one of the camera's built-in creative filter modes. But I'm working in beginner mode (auto) until I learn my way around the dozens of menus, so I challenged myself with this theme to use the camera as I have it set up now. The camera wants to "correct" shots in the auto mode, which further adds to the challenge.
One thing I learned from this exercise is, if I'm closer to the object than the lens can accommodate, the camera won't shoot.
