Minimalist Friday. It’s the end of the work week for me – well, that’s not actually true now that I think about it. I’ve just started teaching at UTAS again (great big YAY going on inside my head right now) – just one online unit, let’s not get too excited (although I really am) – and as anyone who has taught or studied online knows, there really aren’t any days off.
So I’ll start again … Minimalist Friday. It’s the end of the week and this is what I’m looking forward to over the weekend. Minimalism. A line here, a shadow there … that will be enough for me.
Another shot of the flower from yesterday’s blog – this time with a slightly different composition. To me, this composition shows more of the delicacy of the petals and the tenuous nature of how they’re held together. Similar shot in one way, but a very different story if you look carefully.
From the archive.
I’m thinking of doing more flower photography – just for fun and to continue learning about telling stories through images – and so I returned to some of my early work to see where I was ‘at’. I think I still have a lot to learn!
I thought a burst of colour from the archive might brighten my mood, and perhaps yours too.
I’m a long way from the cold and greyness of Melbourne … but the delicacy of this rose warms my heart.
‘The earth laughs in flowers’ said Ralph Waldo Emerson some time ago.
Does it still?
