Share Six: August 2016: Minimalism
It’s August and I have now been stuck in bed for 3 weeks post foot surgery. Knowing that I was going to have surgery, I prepared in advance for the topic Minimalism. I chose the topic. I wanted to be challenged a little to think outside of the box. I read a quote recently that said:
Minimalism: It is not the lack of something. It is the perfect amount of something.
Valerie Jardin said “It is a style that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity”.
For me less is more. The key to creating amazing minimalist photos is Simplicity. I love simplicity in my life. I enjoy peace and quiet which is probably why I am drawn to the ocean so often and meandering through the wetlands and the Japanese Gardens.
I am dying to see what everyone else will shoot on this topic.
In the end only three things matter,
how much you loved; how gently you lived;
and how gracefully you let go of things that were not meant for you.

I LOVE your interpretation of the Minimalism theme, Sharleen. Your definitions and qoutes on what minimalism is to you are so enlightening! And as always, the images you have chosen are wonderful.
Thank you Kim. It was a hard topic even if I chose it and I enjoyed trying to find images that I really wanted to use.
Great job with your photos! Maybe before the month is over I’ll have something to contribute. I especially like your creative photo.
Thank you so much Brandi – I hope you do decide to share.
