Simple Things

Simple things stand out to me, not always, but often when I am in a relaxed mood or just walking, maybe even somewhat bored. I can be browsing in a store and it will be something simple that catches my eye and delights my heart far more than something grandiose.This time of the year with the bright lights and sometimes excessive decorations that I like to take photos of too, I particularly enjoy resting my eye on the simple composition that quiets me and gives me a breather from the high energy of the season.

    • Thank you, Mia. Soothing, yes, I agree I too find it soothing. i guess it is a form of meditation as in contemplative photography.In my home there are simple shapes and i have gotten rid of a lot of clutter.

  3. Simple things are very photogenic – at least with a good eye behind the camera. Those two photos are both nice and calming. I like their simplicity – and I like the winter the depict. My favourite is the pine covered with snow.
