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”.

      Thanks Sue, it took me a while to find something suitable but in the process I learnt something!! It’s been interesting to see others’ interpretations as well. I appreciate your comment – as always 😊

    Great minimalistic composition. I just feel the duck (the focal point) needs to be a little bigger (zoomed in) . (And thanks for having a unique title to your post!) 🙂

      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 😄
