Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist – my little black duck!

I am learning a lot! This week it’s all about minimalism and I have to admit that I resorted to my sister’s expertise to get on top of this theme.  She’s a consummate photographer (and blogger), along with her talented husband. I feel very unequal to their talent but I just keep plugging away regardless!

Here is my ‘little black duck’ photo taken on my iPhone while I was out walking one morning.  I like the grey colour of the water with the ripples fanning out from the duck and the texture of the water.  I hope it is minimalist enough!

An artfully executed minimalist photograph is anything but mundane. It illustrates a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace….A minimalist photo can also effectively tell a story, in spite of its relative simplicity, and it is anything but “plain”.

    1. Thanks for the comment. I appreciate the suggestion and did think much the same thing but didn’t want to lose the ripple effect. I think titles are very important to help stand out from the crowd 😄
