Our host this week, Sophie Alves of photographia asks us to consider the subject of Minimalism/Maximalism and suggests we could think of it as Simplicity/Complexity or Sparce/Full. I admit that I love some of the understated/toned down/spare images I have photographed over the years. At the same time, I prize the bright/complex/full photos in my archives.
Above, minimal light and color as the sun sets on a foggy afternoon create a sense of quiet peace. Below, a similar view after sunset, washed in color and dappled light is infused with mystery.
Above, a single songbird calling from atop a post on a misty day, creates a sense of solitude. Below, migrating shorebirds flock together filling the beach and sky. All four images presented so far have not been enhanced or filtered. These are the colors the camera caught when I took the photos.
