Be Still 52, Day 4

It's the simple things in life that really do bring the greatest joy.  This rose was full of loveliness when it was fresh and fragrant, but it continues in its beauty at the final stages of its life.  I adore the change in color and the change in textures.

Day 4's extra credit exercise was to download and use one of Kim's presets and one of her textures in a photo in a different way which explored wabi-sabi.  I really enjoyed processing this photo and setting up the still for the shot.

It's the Simple Things...

It's the simple things I am finding to be drawn to these days.   I find the desire to slow down... less hustle bustle and more "stop and smell the roses."  I signed up for KimKlassen's Be Still 52 course, which is focused on still life photography.  It is perfect for slowing down the process and finding joy in the simple things.   I have always been drawn to "simple" or less is more photography, but this course just spoke to me for many reasons and Kim is a wonderful instructor and talented photographer.    Here is just a few shots of recent work inspired by the class.
