SIMPLE

I know the meaning of the word simple, 
but figuring out what I should photograph wasn't that simple 
until my husband discovered that there was a button missing from his shirt...
(Texture: kk-deardreamer / Softlight)
then I saw some Washi Tape on my desk...
 (Texture: kk-waterfront18totry / Colorburn)
and preparing for dinner I noticed that my garlic is sprouting, but it's still worth to
immortalize, after processing I used it for a picture page in my Recipe book.
(Texture: kk-embrace /  Muliply)

Oh Barbara, I smiled when I read your comment about the button missing .... really like how you took three simple cotton reels and took such an amazing image of them. Love your other images and the story with them too.

Barbara, These are gorgeous photos of the simple things that surround us. The garlic picture looks just like a page from a cookbook! And the three little spools of thread . . . these simple things that make our lives so complete. Your use of textures adds such a soft touch to this series.

I'm in awe with you photo-art, Barbara! The tiny stiches in white in the first photo - are they a layer or real stiches ... That would make a wonderful canvas - along with the garlics as well!

June said...
