Three Succulent Plants

Three Succulent Plants

These three tiny succulent (and plastic, I might add) potted plants sit in one of the two small windows that flank our fireplace in our apartment.   I love the way the sunlight streams through the glass in the late afternoon.  But try as I might, I have never been able to get a satisfactory shot – mostly since the windows are about 7 feet off the ground

Sky Blue on White, Minimalist

Minimalist Kick: Cyanotype on White

I’ve been on a real minimalist kick in my art as of late.  You can certainly see that in my recent photographs in the 365 Project.  And lately, I’m actually finding it quite difficult to find and shoot compelling images of landscapes or cityscapes/architecture.

So what is up?

I must admit, this is not my normal morning ritual.  But the sunlight through the kitchen window was just begging to illuminate a photograph.  

Six Strings

Six Strings

One of the main reasons for undertaking this 365 Project was to force myself to think outside of the box but also to create images quickly. After all, each shot, like Six Strings, would be shot, processed, and uploaded in a day.
