“Simplicity involves unburdening your life, and living more lightly with fewer distractions that interfere with a high quality life, as defined uniquely by each individual.”
– Linda Breen Pierce, 1947
These pictures are part of my 365 day photo project on Flickr, a project that has refined and strengthened my skills considerably and made me look at photography as more than simply snapping pictures and posting them online. Along with participating in Photography 101 and these weekly picture challenges, I never look at picture taking the same again. When I think of minimalistic photography, I think of taking as much away from the picture that is unneeded, and making one part of the picture, whether it be the subject or part of the subject, the hero. This definitely wasn’t easy and it’s fair to say I still consider myself an amateur photographer who is trying to climb a ladder and find creative inspiration anywhere he looks.
