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.

While I was taking an image of a flower and Mockingbird flew onto the old orchid spikes and started "talking" to me. I think he wanted me to put food out but I am waiting for the ducks to come along.


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.
