Philo is the host for this week’s Lens Artist Challenge and he chose the topic, Simplicity.
Simplicity isn’t necessarily such a simple thing, so I decided to take my cues from the host. In his post Mr. Philo suggests making a single subject the star.
A simple photo can suggest a story. The boat below was sitting on the beach at Crissy Field on the shore of San Francisco Bay? What’s the story? An escape from Alcatraz maybe?
In suggesting still life, Philo offers the quote, “In still-life photography, objects come to life, telling stories of time, history, and human presence.” Unknown.
There’s definitely a story below in a photo I call Morning Coffee 1974
Simplicity in symmetry
