• Should crop this out and make a minimalistic shot. - calvaryzone
  • I love it. I think it breaks the blandness of the photo in a very *simplistic* fashion :) - Thanks for your suggestion :)
  • I found the bloody lacky band only while post processing. Grrr!

Simplicity

Newer Older

What amazes me, is simplicity.
More in people, than in processes.
More in practice, than in theory.
More now, than ever before.
Tragically, simplicity is boring.
The buzz comes from complexity instead.
But of course, it is simplicity that puts complexity into perspective.
Shot a cop, an abandoned building, mourning windows, shiny happy people, characterful faces, etc.
But what this simple blank wall can do, to glorify a complex plant pot, is amazing.
What is also amazing, is the simplicity of capturing a satisfying shot, when not trying too hard.

PS: My handwriting sucks.
