Ultimately, simplicity is the goal — in every art, and achieving simplicity is one of the hardest things to do. Yet it’s easily the most essential.
This is the first week of December, and thus begins my simplicity project.
Having been inspired by Kim Manley Ort, I am joining her in posting images that are simpler and more minimal than usual. It’s a way to remind myself to focus on what is really essential in an image and in the rest of life too.
If this also appeals to you, there’s a Flickr group devoted to Photographic Simplicity that you are welcome to join.

Great composition!! Very well done!
I see a thread of the abstract running through your simplicity photos! Great perspective on this one!
Lovely shot, Sherry! The horizontal crop automatically makes me look at the image from left to right (or right to left), but the vertical and the V lines guide my eyes to look at it from top to bottoms as well. Excellent work.
A lovely bit of (likely intended) irony here – the photo is simplicity itself, while the subject is complexity to the max! I like that juxtaposition.
Although taken in a vertical plane, my brain tells me horizontal. Love this photograph!
awesome vantage point.
That sure is interesting. It pays to look up.
