Nurturing Thursday



Francis of Assisi quote

Words by Francis of Assisi
“Remember that when you leave this earth
you can take nothing of what you have received,
but only what you have given: a full heart,
enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

Jen from The Daily Post says:

An artfully executed minimalist photograph is anything but mundane. It illustrates a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace.

Minimalist photography is characterized by a large portion of negative space, a fairly monochromatic color palette with good contrast, and an interesting subject that is able to stand on its own to capture the interest of the viewer. At first thought, it may seem like it would be easy to shoot an engaging minimalist photograph, when indeed it can often be the opposite. A minimalist photo can also effectively tell a story, in spite of its relative simplicity, and it is anything but “plain”.

  The beauty of the surroundings was interrupted only by the ear-splitting, unmuffled, open exhaust sounds of the airboat traveling 70 miles per hour…!
